    One of the graphic designers here had their 2TB hard drive in their iMac fail. It's only about 6-7 months old, but the closest Apple store is 2 hours away. I'm just going to buy a new drive and swap it myself. I replaced the HD in mine with an SSD so I've done this before and have the tools.

    The question is, what drive should I get to replace it with? I was thinking a Western Digital 2TB Black. Might as well go with something faster, right? I'd use an SSD but they need more space than we can get for ~ $250

    All platter-based hard drives are essentially equal in quality. Can't go wrong with the WD.
