    Hi,

    Since some people were complaining about the noisy HDD in the new Late 2012 iMac, was thinking of making a poll and see what is the usual HDD brand people will get with the late 2012 iMac.

    Here is how to check the HDD Brand

    Apple logo -> About this Mac -> More Info -> System Report -> Serial ATA

    STXXXXXXX = Seagate
    WDXXXXXX = Western Digital
    HTSXXXXXX = Hitachi

    Optional for SSD
    SMXXXXXX = Samsung SSD
    TSXXXXXX = Toshiba SSD

    Is the WD drive in 27 inch a 5400 rpm or 7200 rpm drive?

    Why say it's slower?:confused:
