I have thought of a hybrid drive, but I have trouble finding any. There aren't very many models to begin with and they seem to go off the market quickly.
It's a similar issue with cache drives, every time I think I've found a good one, I see it listed as out of stock.

Works fine. I have one and it does speed things up, but it's only 32GB. You'll probably want a little more caching capacity than that. SanDisk should really make the ReadyCache in larger sizes.

The hybrid HDD's aren't in the same performance class, because they don't have a large enough "SSD" cache section. The ReadyCache with the Condusiv software is faster relative to an ordinary HDD than a hybrid HDD drive is. I've used Seagate's hybrid drives on my desktop before, and in real-world use, it felt as fast as using a Raptor, but while a Raptor is a really fast HDD, it's still an HDD. The 2.5" hybrid drives are best used in laptops; I have a Momentus XT in my laptop and love it. They're supposedly going to make a 3.5" desktop version, but I've yet to see it on the market. I'd like to see a 1 TB HDD with a 64GB SSD cache built in, and would gladly pay to get one.

I had been using Primocache for sometime now and I think it is great software. Got very good result from it for both the L1 and L2 cacheing. But if you have a unstable sytem, I recommend not to use any caching software with write cache on. It just make things worst.
