You mean AC? Don't see any rebates.

Is this a good price for a hybrid drive? Also, what kind improvements can I expect over a regular SSD or HDD by themselves?

Are these the drives recommended for swapping into Xboxes?

FP deals have been $60 for past few months. Would think it'll have dropped just a few buck by now.

It's about 2-10 times as fast as a HDD depending on what's cached, whereas a SSD would be closer to 30 times as fast.

I have 2 of these on a PC setup for steam, they are not super fast like an SSD but way more faster than an HDD. I would highly recommend them. I installed one into a mac and boot up was cut down to 1/3 the time. SSD is 5 sec bootup, SSHD is 10 sec boot up and HDD is 35-45 sec boot up for an early 2007 mac running El Capitan

Gas cars < hybrid cars < electric cars.

Same holds true for drives, with hard drives being the equivalent of gas cars. You won't get SSD level performance but it's definitely an upgrade.
Terrible comparison. Only similarity is the two products both have "hybrid" in them

You will not notice any difference in boot up or load times if your looking for that I would highly recommend an SSD. If you just need more storage these are good as an internal or external storage option to replace your stock harddrive

All the comparisons I've seen on these was for old first gen ps4. Would this do anything for a ps4 pro or Xbox One X?
