1 TB SSD Hybrid 3.5" Hard Drive

$119.95

Product code: IF107-129-1

Product Overview

Important: To ensure compatibility with the 2009 and 2010 21.5" or 27" iMac, the replacement hard drive must be of the same brand as the original. The model number of the hard drive does not matter as long as the brand matches. 2011 and up iMacs cannot be supported by us.

This drive offers 1 terabyte of storage space for your desktop computer while performing well above other 1TB 3.5" drives.

Hybrid technology from Seagate combines SSD and traditional hard drive technology to provide SSD speeds from an affordable high capacity hard drive. Adaptive Memory technology keeps the files and file types you access the most ready and available for instant transfer from SSD.

No software or operating system requirements, Adaptive Memory technology is self-contained and works like any SATA drive.

Stories

My Problem

I suffered slow performance for 2 years and thought the machine was just getting long in the tooth. I created a Yosemite boot disk on a USB drive. The machine was incredibly fast when running even over USB 2.0, so I had a feeling it was the hard drive. I ran SpinRite for a day and it started to show errors as well as being generally very slow. Without good diagnostics I was not 100% certain it was the hard drive, but I was almost so.

My Fix

The repair was straightforward thanks to MJ's video. The only challenge I had was the hard drive thermistor, which had lost its stickiness. I used a piece of electrical tape and I hope that will work. I think that piece of plastic might be a good offering to go along with this repair, or perhaps iFixit has a tried a trusted method of sticking the thermistor? I got a bit careless when I hit this issue and forgot to plug in the thermistor, resulting in the fan blowing at full power ... so I kind of got to do the repair twice.

My Advice

Take it slow. Have the cloth and cleaner on hand. As soon as the glass comes off the LCD will start to get dusty. Be careful screwing in the LCD connector's #6 torx screws. Don't over tighten. Deep breaths.

My Problem

Lately, my son's iMac 24" (version 7,1, model 2134) began to behave oddly. After a little investigation, I found a S.M.A.R.T. notification saying the HD has to be replaced due to unrepairable errors... to great relief of my son, who was afraid that piling a vast quantity of games and other garbage "w/o protection" was the cause of a virus infection or a corrupted system.

My Fix

At first I was a little afraid of digging into the internals of that machine, which isn't as easy to rip as my Mac Pro. But I checked your guides and found one that matches my needs, and I decided go for it.

I have checked your site in Europe, but at last I decided to place an order at your US site, despite a little increase in costs of shipment, due to the convenience of getting the tools needed and the HD replacement at once.

The goods arrived quickly, and I was able to finish the replacement very easily following your step by step guide in just one and a half or two hours, including taking the photos of all the process (actually they took me more time than the actual job). You can check them all at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3ar5tny9mb7wd...

In fact the only difficult and time consuming task in the whole "incident" was restoring from Time Machine and cleaning the garbage that was filling the old HD.

My Advice

The process you describe in your Guide "iMac Intel EMC 2134 and 2211 Hard Drive Replacement" is very clear, and drive me along the process so it end up very easily.

But if you ask me for any advice or comments, it comes to me 3:

- In the Step 11 of the guide you warns about the difficulty of removing and reconnecting the LCD cable to the power supply... Definitely it was difficult, but to me, it was way harder (requiring a dangerous amount of force) to detach the hard drive black bracket as you describe in Step 15. In my case I took an alternate procedure removing first the two T8 Torx screws securing the bracket, so you can slide it sideways out of their metal case support and so liberating the upper part of the HD.

You can see it in my first attached photo.

- Also, I meet a little annoyance when I was reinstalling the front aluminium bezel. It happens that the little luminosity sensor placed below the middle lower part of the screen was somewhat pushed out of place while placing the large bezel, and after realizing the issue I have to de-bend it and relocate with a spudger (photo 2). Maybe you can warn about it in your guide.

- Finally, I found missing a couple of the magnets of the bezel (photo 3): they have lost the adhesive which fixes them to the back of the bezel and ended up attached to the steel frame beneath. I have cleaned the old adhesive rests and replaced it with double sided thin tape trimmed to fit in their sockets. Umm... due to the little glueing surface, the smoothness of metallic parts and the (really) strong force of the magnets, I don't know if that shoddy work will resist if not maintained by the attraction of the metal strips in the back of the front glass panel. Any idea of a better suited adhesive?
