Its not an SSD, it only caches commonly used files like the OS files.

So startup and a few small apps might be marginally faster but actual game load times would not be.

This was just $60 last week @ Newegg and goes on sale regularly for that price, so if you don't NEED this right now, just wait.

Yes they are. I've researched on the topic. There was an improvement, not as much as a SSD but still an improvement splitting the difference between a normal hdd.

Not as fast as a SSD which costs more but you will get a significant improve on load times. It's just harder of a switch to install it internally into an xbox one vs a PS4.

IF you are going to get this from NewEgg.com, you may as well get it from eBay that's sold by NewEgg, and take advantage of the 10% cashback.

Be aware. It's not an actual solid state drive. It's still a spinning drive

It's a spinning drive with 8GB of solid state memory. The drive monitors the most accessed blocks of data and copies those to the solid state portion to accelerate read performance.

It is not as fast as a pure SSD, but is faster than a traditional hard disk for those that need the additional storage space at this price point.
