Seagate SuperSpeed 1TB HDD + 8 GB SSD STBD1000400
One of the newest sights in the realm of hard drives is the notion of a Hybrid drive, which combines the cheap, high-capacity potential of a hard drive with the super fast read/write speeds of an SSD. The Seagate SueprSpeed line tries to merge this by offering a huge 1TB hard drive, but also throwing in an 8GB "SSD," which is really a type of NAND flash. While this may seem strange or even fishy in terms of design, trust us this is what makes the Seagate SuperSpeed a really fast drive without shelling out the premium price for 10,000RPM hard drive. While you won't get very fast sustained transfers, and it's still more pricey than typical hard drives, this drive is still a great choice among those looking for a little extra something in their hard drive's performance.
