Do you have you a question about the Seagate FireCuda (2TB) 2.5 Inch SATA Internal Solid State Hybrid Drive?

Q: How does this 2.5" 2TB SSHD compare with its 3.5" equivalent in terms of performance? I want to replace my 1TB HDD data only drive in my CCL built desktop as I do a lot of photo post processing. I already have a 256GB SSD for OS & all software. Incidentally the 3.5 2TB SSHD seems to have disappeared off your site recently. Will you get it back in stock? Thanks Paul

Its a 2.5 Hybrid SATA hard drive. The name alone makes any device its installed in sound faster. Used to upgrade a PS4 slim. Works perfectly. PS4 operates slightly faster. Most noticeable in game were if you lose a life and reloading is needed. Returning to the home screen seems smoother also.

This performs exactly as described. I am running this in my PS4 and due to this being a hybrid, the main games I play in a cycle load real fast. This company are a registered retailer for the Firecuda, meaning you get full warranty. They were also the cheapest out of official retailers. Highly recommend this product and CCL

Bought this to replace a failing Xbox One internal 500Gb drive, followed a couple of YouTube guides and everything works much better, with a slight improvement in loading and saving speeds.

Bought to upgrade my ps4 .increased storage and games load faster. I am pleased with the upgrade


August 2019

Replacement for 1TB hybrid drive in my Intel Nuc i5. Seems to be working well for now.


July 2019

Pretty much exactly what you need for mass storage purposes running alongside an SSD. Noticeably faster read & write compared to a classic HDD due to the 8Gb cache and pretty good random read/write to boot! I was also pleasantly surprised when fully formatting to enable full disk encryption (which usually takes an ABSOLUTE eon!). Not had any issues, but bare in mind I have had this drive for <6 months, so I can't comment on any medium/long term usage cases.


July 2019

Very good value. Cheaper then other retailers. Works well with ps4. No trouble at all


June 2019

Hard drive arrived on time and has performed from first boot up without any problems.


February 2019

A perfect upgrade for original ps4. With original 500gb as spare storage!


January 2019

No problems. Working fine

Sulev Johnson

Works as expected, bought to use in my ps4 pro, no problems and a easy swap out out for the standard stock ps4 pro stock hdd giving my much more internal hdd space.


January 2019

Fast and quiet Hybrid Drive. Using as a secondary drive in my desktop PC.


January 2019

Used to upgrade PS4 Pro from the factory 1TB, loads of space now and faster load times on the majority of games
