    If you have a 2TB drive in your new iMac, please post if it is Western Digital, Seagate or Hitachi. Thanks!

    How is your Hitachi drive? Is it quiet? I do not mean the drive itself, but the system overall? I just returned mine because the fan was loud and I have heard that all new iMacs with 2TB Hitachi drives have the same issue.

    I have the 2 Tb Hitachi-mine has a low hum. The funny thing is if I tilt the iMac all the way down the humming ends. Tilt the iMac up and the humming gets more noticeable. Weird.

    I've always had WDC HDD's-never has any sort of problems/annoyances.

    For a long time Hitachi was the only one with a 7200 rpm 2TB drive.

    Cheers,

    Seagate. (27" 2011 3.4 GHz iMac)
    I do not find it noisier than the 2010 model it replaced that had a WD

    Hitachi. It's very quiet. If I think to listen carefully, sometimes I hear it accessing. The external drives are louder.
