Combine the huge storage space of a mechanical hard drive with the high-speed of a solid state drive with the Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drive. Don’t sacrifice space or speed because now you can have them both with this 500GB Seagate hybrid, sold by Amazon.co.uk for only £46.99.

Seagate Momentus XT 500GB Overview

It’s a known fact that solid state drives have a huge impact on the overall performance of a PC but it’s also a known fact that SSDs are not cheap, so what do you do if you want to have a bit of both? The solution is simple – a hybrid drive.

Seagate seems to have found the perfect combinations with the Momentus XT series of drives, combining 2 different technologies into one single product, with impressive results. In the case of the Seagate Momentus XT 500GB hybrid drive we’re talking about a 500GB mechanical drive paired with 4GB of NAND flash memory and a smart controller that allows the unit to “learn” what applications you use the most and pre-load them into the flash memory for quick access, resulting in dramatically better performance.

Another advantage of the Momentus XT is that it comes in a 2.5-inch form factor, being suitable for both desktop PCs and laptops.
