Toshiba H200 1TB SSHD Hybrid Drive £44 @ Amazon

23
Found 23rd Jan 2016
So I was looking for a 1TB SSHD for over a month now, and this one was on my radar due to its price. I had it at order when available and although it is saying out of stock, today i got the email that it has been ordered at 44 quid. the 500 GB version is currently at 36 quid which is ok as well. This is an ideal hdd for laptops and PS4's , faster than the normal hdd...

Amazon desc:
Toshiba's SSHD recorded the score of PCMARK 1 Vantage several times higher. Toshiba's SSHD dynamically learns the access pattern in each system and directs data to the appropriate tiers, that are DRAM, NAND and disk media. High speed access is achieved by storing frequently-accessed data to NAND. Toshiba also develops leading-edge microscopic memory technology in NAND. This experience enables Toshiba to boost the NAND technologies, such as defective blocks management, ECC (Error Correction Code), conversion of logical block address, and wear-leveling. Toshiba's SSHD is a lower cost alternative to SSDs while keeping close to SSD performance by the optimized NAND configuration. High Anti-Oscillation Performance with RV Sensors as a feature engineered to raise performance and reliability, an RV sensor detects increased vibration to help curb the impact of such shaking.

As people are still reporting as of today that the deal is still online can anyone unexpire this please?

Heated and good price, though I think this has been posted before as it was HUKD I found out about it on here and ordered two on 4th Jan and even got Amazon to take £10 off my backorder yesterday with the code (BIGTHANKS), so even better. Though at this stage I'm not sure if they are ever going to come back in stock, as they have been out for so long.....

Really hope they do though as it would be a bargain if it ever happens!

Better of with the Hitachi 7200 rpm 1tb for ps4. But good deal never the less.

How do they compare vs one another in tests?

Find this quite surprising, and a tad disappointing, as I had hoped to use one of mine in the PS4 (if they materialise).

Surely a hybrid SSD/hard drive would always be faster than just a fast mechanical hard drive?

Does the hybrid SSD caching not work properly in PS4?

Hi, sorry didn't back up my recommendation. Basically was deciding what to get get, found this article below. It seems the sshd isn't consistent, where the 7200 Hitachi is. The sshd at 44 however is worth a punt.

I cannot see these ever materialising at £44.

Ignore the ign article if you are comparing drives in the PS4.

SSHD is faster but the cache means you have to load stuff 2-3 times to get the big speed boosts. If you play one game at a time the loading advantages are very clear. I don't know how this drive compares against Seagate's SSHD however .

It's mainly because this drive is only 8GB of NAND so you're not getting much in the way of it boosting speed for many files at all. You want an SSHD with a larger SSD portion and you wont be seeing benefits instantly. You'll see benefits in boot time after a few boots, then benefits in load times for your most used game (yes game, them things are massive and you wont be having assistance from the SSD side for all your games)

I ordered a Toshiba 3TB P300 3.5" retail kit hard drive for £66 (NOW £84) that was out of stock and it was delivered. at the same time the OEM version (cheaper version) was selling for £80.
So IF you order a out of stock item from amazon they will fulfill the order even if there was a price mistake,you just have to be patient and wait for it to be restocked.
I have had other items that had pricing mistakes and they where fulfilled too.

On the other hand, I have ordered a wrist watch that was 'awaiting stock' at a to-good-to-be-true price. Waited and waited then a couple of months later they emailed that they were unable to get any more stock at that price.

Anyone tried a SSHD in a CCTV system?
The traditional mechanical drives for such are rated for use in CCTV - constant head access 24/7 (IE WD purple spec).

Still waiting for mine. In the meantime I noticed this listing for the exact same drive, in stock from Amazon but more expensive.

Contacted Amazon to see if they could just send me that one. The rep tried to make out that they're different drives, saying that the 'OEM' in the title and the discrepancies in the specs that Amazon chose to plug into each listing amounted to them being different products. They're blatantly the same drive. Rep seemed clueless to put it lightly. In the end they agreed to cancel my order, let me order the new one and refund the price difference which amounts to the same result.

Might be worth a shot if others are still waiting and keen on this drive at a decent price.

Thank you very much for this post, I managed to get them to do it as well! Just went on the chat. Initially they were insistent they are completely different products (they aren't, just one is oem one isn't) but I insisted they were the same item, that I was experienced in PC parts (I am) and that I thought they were trying to get out of honouring the original cheaper price.

I just had to reorder and they adjusted the price for me.

Only slight issue in my case is that my original order had a £10 discount against it, which has been lost in the new order and they wouldn't apply it to my account or give me it in digital video credit but I might go on the phone with them tomorrow and press for that as well.

Just really pleased I'll be getting the drives , which I was beginning to doubt would ever materialise.

2nd time lucky!

Anybody else who tries and gets nowhere with normal customer service ask to be escalated to a supervisor to complain.

The rep was right. You ordered the OEM/bulk model and you're getting the retail, including retail packaging, documentation, a consumer helpline and possibly even a longer warranty. As experienced users/builders don't need most of that stuff manufacturers sell OEM equipment cheaper.

You guys who have got them to supply the retail at the bulk price have got a good deal, I'd call that good customer service.

It's the other way round, they ordered retail but have asked for OEM, Amazon seems to get confused sometimes and offers the retail cheaper than OEM

Anyone else had a luck getting hold of this?
Had a look at the other item in one of the posts above but Amazon no longer sell this.

I ordered this on the 23rd Jan, decided to leave the order waiting sitting there waiting for stock, and hey, it's just shipped this evening. Should be getting it in 2-3 days
