    The hybrid is around 10% slower, but is better value for money. And id be able to put all my games on it. Which one would you go for

    And it's the corsair force series 3 SSD

    And seagate hybrid

    I think they are decent and if you can get a 500GB for under £100 then it is not so bad. Most people have good things to say about the momentus xt etc.

    ive used both the momentus 500 and several ssd's, believe me the ssd's are WAY faster in normal day to day things
    500gb is nice to have and good if thats what you need as a boot drive but you cant compare the two
    you have to think about what you need most, if its pure speed then ssd, if its faster than conventional hdd and space them hybrid
    only you can decide
