2 TB SSD Hybrid 3.5" Hard Drive

$154.95

Product code: IF107-128-1

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 2 terabytes of storage space for your desktop computer while performing well above other 2TB 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.

My Problem

HDD-failure

My Fix

Slow tempo about an hour. No problems and no mistakes, thanks to the guide of Brittany McCrigler: iMac Intel 24" EMC 2134 and 2211 Hard Drive Replacement

My Advice

The only thing that I didn't follow, was step 11 "disconnect the LCD cable by pulling down". I disconnected it from the lcd-screen itself.

My Problem

2008 iMac was getting increasingly slow. No problems diagnosed—it was just getting old, taking ages to open applications—and driving me nuts. I was nervous about putting an SSD into my iMac—having to remove the screen, etc.—seemed a bit daunting.

My Fix

Had the whole job done within an hour. So much easier than I expected it to be. (I've put an SSD in a MacBook Pro too which was more tricky by comparison). My iMac is now like brand new. Incredibly fast. I'm really, really pleased.

My Advice

Just follow iFixit's instructions. The photos, the written steps, the feedback from other users......superb help. Thank you iFixit!

My Problem

After loading Yosemite and more and more documents and programs the imac mid 2010 worked in some parts to slow and with irregularities. So in a first step I doubled the RAM from 4 to 8 GB. The actual next step was to increase the storage capacity from a 0.5 HD to a 2 TB SSD Hybrid 3.5".

My Fix

I worked me through - would say the best. Aside my laptop with the super guide in front - and the fine helper hands of my wife...because the cable connectors are to small for big fingers. I helped me too with a little tool. Surprised I was when despite of much care the "display data connection cable" came away itself because this cable is a little stiff. I really took care by opening the display board! The sense of the plastic pull tab there I didn't understand really. The LCD thermal sensor connection cable was taped to the fan case. (I didn't tape it again when I built all together). The "display data connection cable" I could plug in again by patience.

My Advice

In any case: After 2 hours the imac was fitted again together and works now since one week perfect, will say in his "old youth".

My Problem

S.MA.R.T read error would not let me upgrade to OS X Yosemite.

My Fix

Repair was straight forward. I nearly ruined the Monitor Connection when I first removed the monitor to check the HDD, The instructions given on the guide are clear, I just misread them. Second time around I didn't remove the monitor.

My Advice

If you have to replace the hard drive I would recommend not fully removing the monitor. I used a pair of thick socks to keep the monitor angled upwards and this allowed me ample access to remove the HDD and install the new one.

My Problem

The problem was I listened to my computer experts in the repair business. Approximately 3 months after my warranty on IMAX ran out my computer completely shut down. Being most computer illiterate and needing it for my business I immediately took my IMAX into the computer experts, a high profile computer business in my neck of the woods. Upon their detailed (?) investigation I was told it was my hard drive and possibly my power supply and to fix it would NOT be worth it. However they would be more than happy to sell me a new one and would do me a favour of disposing of my IMAX for me. Something bother me about their unprofessional approach. I bought another computer (not an IMAX and not from them) and I took my IMAX home placed it on my desk and swore I would look at it when I had time. How hard can this be? That was March 2013!

I have just found time to look at this IMAX and my research led me to iFixit….after viewing their site I order a new power supply and upgraded hard drive….covering all the bases!

My Fix

I had been told how difficult it was to repair a flat screen IMAX by the computer repair shop. Their advise was so self serving. Installing A NEW HARD DRIVE AND POWER SUPPLY WAS SO SIMPLE, it also returned to me my IMAX at a more than reasonable cost. I took the original hard drive to another shop and determined that there was nothing wrong with my hard drive…it now is a 1T external hard drive to my IMAX giving me 3T of memory. My enthusiasm has also led me to install an additional 8 meg. of RAM….even easier to do.

My Advice

If going to a computer shop make sure the computer shop has a technician that actually knows something about apple products. So many have experienced PCs and think they are MAX experts as well. NOT! ...iFixit made my repairs a piece of cake and at a very reasonable cost. If I can do it anybody can!
