SSHD a good option?

I need some storage for my new PC build. is it better to go with a SSHD hybrid drive or piece out the drives into 1TB HDD and 120GB SDD? I think both will probably run about the same cost wise (~$100). Any thought?

Make sure to look at multiple sources for your info when deciding to buy something.

You don't physically install, move, store, or load anything from an SSHD's NAND cache. That's not how an SSHD works. For its purposes, price, and design, 8GB is decent. It's used as a cache, not a storage volume.

The statement that you can't install your OS on the 8GB NAND is misleading, because it was never meant to have anything installed on it in the first place.

You don't actively decide to store anything on an SSHD's NAND. It's just used for caching. Smart-caching at that.
