Just for a data point, my non-fusion 27" i7 BTO has the 1TB Seagate.

The base model Porsche Cayenne has a 3.2L VR6 engine from a VW Golf, the 3.6L V8 is the same as on the VW Passat, most Audis run (tuned up) VW engines, and so on, and so forth.

The reality is that a merge would have lead to a duopoly of WD and Seagate for 3.5" drives, which are now owned by Toshiba to prevent that, while WD took the 2.5" and SSD businesses.

I have the 3TB FD, and the HDD is also a Seagate. Hopefully, we will not have the issue that plauged the old iMacs, but I was lucky there, and got the WD 1TB in my 2011 model.

Sigh, I had to exchange my iMac a couple of times for screen issues and didn't notice that the one I ended up with had a Western Digital drive. It's a 27" BTO with 1TB fusion. My first two iMacs had a Seagate drive. I honestly can't tell the difference in everyday use, but it irks me that Apple would put two wildly differently performing drives in the same spec computer. Are they relying on the fact that the flash drive is going to mitigate most performance concerns of the magnetic disk?

I tried using blackmagic disk speed test and am getting 300 write/375 read, which seems pretty good. But that's probably just on the flash drive. How do I just test the magnetic drive?

Guys

I got my new 27" i7, 1 TB fusion, 24gb ram, 680mx on wednesday.

I have the WD hard drive and the blackmagic tests are showing in the region of 314mb write and 341mb read. (it has been up to 331 write and 421 read btw)

No problems so far so I cant complain really.. be nice to see a comparison

About to order a high-end 27"

3Tb Fusion is still the only guarantee for the faster Seagate? Correct?

Really excited about this. Finally an all-Mac household.

Thanks for the confirmation!

Might be...I have the 3TB Fusion and it also has the Seagate ST3000DM001.

Where did you get the info from?

BTW the WD Blue was found on a non-Fusion model.
WD read/write 130
Seagate read/write 200
