FAST INSTALL. COMPATIBLE WITH ANY OS.

Not only is the Momentus XT SSHD fast and roomy, it’s quick and easy to install. Whether for your own use or for a network of workstations, it takes no time to save time.
Momentus XT SSHDs are designed to work in any standard laptop. Giving you OS-, driver- and software-independence, you’ll find them remarkably simple to integrate and easy to use.

it is handled as any normal Sata drive, it only loads data faster, because of the large Ram in the  interface
