As far as I know you cant use defrag on the SSD but things may have changed.

Some info, here. Not sure if I'd go for a hybrid as its neither one or the other.

This is a new one for me, "2.Frequent Anti-virus scans can disrupt the performance optimization of the drive" ?

rdave thanks for the links had a good read, i think i will avoid these drives and keep to either ssd or sata. perhaps c drive on ssd and rest on sata

I'm running a 64 gig SSD drive for OS and some programs and sata drives for all data and other programs that have no special need for speed.

Some links that might help if you decide to go for SSD,





The difference in speed is very noticeable. If you buy a Crucial SSD then have a look here,


Firmware updates but I'm not gambling yet, just in case :)
