Searched the forum and found last year it was on sale for 74.99?
Or this is rock bottom?

According to the three camels, on Amazon.ca, it fell to $80 ONCE during black friday 2017.

When I say several times, I mean with several vendors. I got mine from newegg.

Actually I have read online the 2.5 inch Firecuda was only 5400 RPM too? Is that true cause their website didn't say anything.

Interesting. Are you saying that caching to the internal SSD is ineffective? Can you point to any benchmarks?

A bit faster than regular HDD, much slower than pure SSD

No, benchmark, used both myself, advantage of 7200 drive is always consistent speed. SSHD 8gigs SSD portion is too tiny to make a difference. I had a 2 TB SSHD and a 1 TB 7200rpm drive before. 7200rpm drive consistantly give me better speed compare to stock drive. SSHD only give me advantage on booting up and I have to run the same software constantly which is rarely the case. Price is the only advantage it has over 7200rpm 2.5" drive. I am now using a 3tb 3.5" 7200rpm external drive for PS4. Load time is much better than stock.Hugh wrote: ↑Mar 10th, 2018 12:50 pmInteresting.

Or is the problem that the latency is unpredictable and that this is bad for gaming?
(I'm not a gamer but I've always wondered about the actual experience with these SSHDs. For some reason they don't seem to have taken off.)
2.5" firecuda is always 5400rpm, slow as shit from my experience.
