hdd performance is simple - its either an SSD, or its NOT

this is not an ssd, it has the same performance field of any other modern 2.5 inch drive

if its more expensive then a regular mechanical drive, then its not worth it

I'd rather get the slim 500GB Seagate hybrids. I've been pretty impressed by them so far.

I've pulled too many failing Toshiba 2.5" drives from laptops than I care to remember.
 


Not really, there is a reasonable difference between 5xxx RPM drives and 72xxx RPM ones. But within those classes, less so.

I'm guessing that the extra 78 RPM is either a marketing ploy, or it rounds more nicely somewhere.

Not that I am trying to say this is great innovation or anything, but the fact that it is a 7mm drive means it can be fit into thin laptops where 9mm can't. The smaller Dell Latitudes require 7mm, and I believe most of those drives are 5400 RPM.

Why would a HDD first be more expensive and then later be a regular mechanical drive? That makes no sense. It would somehow change because of the expense?
