Today I have become a proud owner of Solid State Hard Drive


This drive is going to be used as a repository for Dropbox, where I have 1TB of space.

It will be the first time that I use this technology – in my current PC I have an SSD that goes directly into the motherboard, then a normal SSD that is connected by SATA cable and the old fashioned hard drive. This will be a nice replacement.

However, Seagate are not pairing this hard disk with a proper sized SSD, instead it has only got 8GB of NAND cache!

But in my case all its going to be used for is for centralising data stored in Dropbox, so the performance is not an issue. Also, you can do a lot with 8GB of cache if you do it properly.
