Re: Y50-70 Windows regularly freezes when 1TB SSHD is spinning up

Hi feedthegraph,

 

I am getting frustrated with the constant hesitation and stuttering from my Y50.  And since Lenovo has been moving slowly on a resolution to this problem I am considering purchasing a ST1000LM014-1EJ164 Seagate 1TB-SSHD as you did.  I believe you were going to "push the system just in case the HD wasn't the problem".  Can you tell me how your system has been performing with the Seagate drive?  And just to double check, the 9.5 mm drive fit without any difficulties?

 

Thanks in advance for your response!

Hi,

 

I'm not feedthegraph, but I can answer this for you. I do not have a Seagate hybrid drive, but I think it will work much better than the WD10S21X included with the Y50. However, I do recommend an even better alternative: the WD Black² dual drive, with SSD and HDD showing up as two separate partitions, not one partition as in the case of SSHD's. The Y50 supports 9.5mm drives perfectly: I was able to get my Black² and Windows 7 installed without any problems. Although it's 1.7X the price of the Seagate, it is a much better investment. Search the drive up on Google, buy one for like $130 on Amazon, and you won't believe the results, trust me.

I'm sorry, but I'm getting so frustrated. My computer might as well be a brick in it's level of usefulness to me now. The hard drive is so bad now that I can't even update anything. @Amy_Lenovo, please, I would like an adress that I can send it to where the HD will be replaced with a working model. I know you are working hard, but the computer is completely useless now.
