Should I get a hybrid drive?

Episode 1033 (2:04:34)

Scott from Arizona

Scott wants to upgrade to a Solid State drive but wonders about the hybrid drive. Leo says that Hybrid drives are basically supposed to be the best of both worlds, with the faster speed of an SSD and the storage capacity of the HDD. In reality, they don't work as well as the solid state drives Leo prefers. In fact, benchmarks show that they're very disappointing. Leo suggests getting an SSD for his programs, and an external spinning drive for data storage.
