Today I saw a post over at Anantech about Western Digital's new 500GB Hybrid Hard drive. Now, you may not be a fan of hybrid drives for whatever reason; maybe its because the write speeds are lower or the cache is all t0o often too small. Maybe the data management software doesn't write over unneeded information but rather nukes its copy of your boot files, slowing down your next few boots to regular HDD speeds. Maybe you own a powder-blue Toyota Pruis and realise that no-one will buy anything second-hand that has the "Hybrid" moniker attached to it (and if you somehow do own a powder-blue Prius, there's no hope for you). However, for all the drawbacks we may be able to point out, hybrid drives have made their mark and are here to stay.
