[Amazon.ca] Seagate FireCuda 2TB 2.5 inch SSHD $84.99

First time posting a deal so hopefully I'm doing it right. Pretty good price for this drive. Usually see it in the $120+ range. It's great for a PS4 drive upgrade.

Not bad i paid 129.99 2 years ago. Glad I got it, great for storing games and movies. I put my more played games on the ssd but this sshd is very fast as well. Definitely recommend a sshd over HDD for most purposes, it's worth it.

You can get a 1TB SSD for just a little more these days...

I was basically deciding between this and a 1 TB ssd for my ps4. In the end, I opted for the extra space. The speed tests I've seen on the internet have the ssd coming out ahead by just a couple of seconds.

I've got an Acer Predator G3 desktop with an extra hard drive bay to insert an additional drive. Would this thing fit? I've never done this before. Would appreciate any advice anyone could provide. Thanks in advance.

Reviews say it is slow, I am not sure what makes this a hybrid if it spins at 5400...

Bought a couple of these on Prime day to replace SSDs in my PS4 and my PC.

Replaced a 500GB SSD I had installed in the PS4. I loved the SSD speed but was getting tired of having to delete things to make room. So far works fine in the PS4 for longer term storage use.
In the PC, it does not like intense writing workloads at all. After research found out the HD portion is an SMR drive, which is more for archiving. my own fault for jumping into SSHD without doing research. The Firecuda will still come in handy for storing stuff but I probably would have preferred saving up for a larger traditional SSD.

Best use for this drive is for storing larger Applications / Games / Media where you're mostly going to be reading back stuff once it's installed on to it. If you need write performance as well, better off getting a regular SSD or an NVME SSD.

The cache portion of the disk is solid state. It will, based on your usage, stick the data you use most frequently in the cache and that portion will perform fairly well.
