    So as we all know, seagate is crap. I had one, was noisy, got it replaced and now i have a completely silent imac (another seagate though). I still don't like seagate, and i honestly think they make crappy products.

    Anyway seagate knows theres a problem, and their working on a fix.

    That article explains it all, but this could offer a fix for the noisy hard drives



    "particularly when installed in a Mac. Seagate forumgoers speculate these are symptoms of the XT's magnetic platters spinning down inappropriately, due to an overzealous power management scheme."

    That's about the Momentous XT, its for laptops only. And iMac's take desktop sized hard drives.
