Do you recommend this hybrid drive, Scott?

I've used the 500Gb and 750Gb version and been very happy with them. They are fast booting like a SSD, big storage capacity and pretty cheap. I see no point in the retail package. I wish I had held off on the 750Gb. A month later and I could have had one more year on the warranty and an extra 250Gb for $10 more.

I've been using and recommending the Seagate Hybrid drives since they first came out. They are the next best thing to a much more expensive SSD. Scott.

Is it true that one shouldn't defragment hybrid drives?

No, that is only true for SSDs. Hybrid drives should be defragmented periodically. Scott.
