    Does anyone know what the write and read speeds are on this drive compared to a SSD?

    I was thinking about replacing mine with a Vertex 3 SSD 480 GB until I saw they are going for close to $1,500, I could get one, but I can not justify the cost, the 120GB and 256GB are much cheaper.

    I dont know the speed an it doesn't compare to the vertex 3, but my 500gb seagate hybrid boots up in 30 seconds and my novabench scores average 640.
