Hybrid Seagate Hard Drive Has Performance Issues

EconolineCrush writes “The launch of Seagate’s Momentus XT hard drive was discussed here last week, and for good reason. While not the first hybrid hard drive on the market, the XT is the only one that sheds the Windows ReadyDrive scheme for an OS-independent approach Seagate calls Adaptive Memory. While early coverage of the XT was largely positive, more detailed analysis reveals a number of performance issues, including poor sequential read throughput and an apparent problem with command queuing. In a number of tests, the XT is actually slower than Seagate’s year-old Momentus 7200.4, a drive that costs $40 less.”
