Jonathon Sze depends on his laptop for work and play. For this reason, he decided to upgrade the performance and processing capability of his laptop by purchasing a 750GB Seagate® Laptop SSHD.
Sze is constantly on the go. It is therefore a requirement that his laptop is robust, boots up quickly and holds all his data. As a hardcore gamer, he also needs the extra computing power and additional space required by some of the latest applications and games he uses. Upgrading to the Laptop SSHD allows Sze to move quickly between programs without having to wait for pages and applications to load, as he did in the past.
Seagate SSHDs will redefine the gaming industry. Games can run much faster with the Seagate SSHD than they can on conventional PCs. In fact, the performance and capacity boosts of Seagate SSHDs can make gaming that much more attractive and will ignite the imagination of gamers and road warriors alike.” Jonathon Sze, director of games management, Infocomm Asia Holdings
Prior to the upgrade, his laptop, though fairly new, took time to boot up and was slow in launching the latest applications and games. Sze did not want to sacrifice capacity for performance, so he did his research and ultimately decided to go with Seagate. The main clincher, he pointed out, is the quality and reliability of the Laptop SSHD, which provides excellent performance to road warriors who depend on their laptops for speed, robustness and the best data integrity possible.
The SSHD provides the best of the two worlds – it bridges the gap between solid state drive (SSD) speed and HDD value, performance and capacity. According to Sze, “This hybrid drive combines both the hard drive and the SSD into a single hybrid drive, thereby giving me the speed of an SSD with the capacity and price of a traditional hard drive.”
For Sze, the installation process was simple, and his new Laptop SSHD operates quietly and smoothly in his laptop. He can move effortlessly and efficiently between commonly used applications, such as PowerPoint, Chrome, Explorer, Excel, Word and IAH games. File access and transfers are also performed quickly.
Sze is ecstatic with the results of the upgrade. “After trying out the Seagate Laptop SSHD, I am honestly blown away. The concept of a hybrid drive is very intriguing to me, and to see it come into fruition as it has makes me confident for the future of hybrid drives. Also, the SSHD is priced competitively. Anything that can lower the GB/$ value and not give up anything in terms of performance is a big deal in my book.”
The good thing about this hybrid technology is that it is system agnostic and integrates easily into any computer, Mac or PC, with no additional drivers.
In addition, with Seagate Adaptive Memory technology, boot times and application speeds are dramatically improved because the Laptop SSHD learns to cache your most frequently used data, unleashing your system’s performance.
The bottom line for users is that we want to boot up fast and be able to depend on our PCs to perform whenever we need them. A drive has to have data integrity,” Sze said. For almost any user who has turned to the SSHD, the speed boost and performance are addictive. Anyone who is on the fence on whether or not to get a hybrid drive should go for it. They will not be disappointed.”
By and large, the Solid State Hybrid Drive solutions open new possibilities and frontiers for gamers and the gaming sector. “Seagate SSHDs will redefine the gaming industry. Games can run much faster with the Seagate SSHD than they can on conventional PCs. In fact, the performance and capacity boosts of Seagate SSHDs can make gaming that much more attractive and will ignite the imagination of gamers and road warriors alike.”
The Seagate Laptop SSHD features up to 1TB of capacity and 8GB of NAND flash for accelerating the most commonly used PC applications and delivering desktop performance with the storage capacity needed for any computing scenario.
