Seagate Momentus XT Solid State Hybrid 320GB SATA300
The Seagate Momentus XT packs 320GB of capacity, with 8GB of SLC NAND flash, and a SATA 6.0Gbps interface. The Momentus XT features FAST Boot, which sets aside a small portion of the solid-state cache for data used during the boot process, where it will remain for the life of the drive, so that your system always boots from flash.
Nearly as fast as an SSD.
Slow write speeds in some tests.
