New, internal 2TB (2,000GB) 3.5" Seagate Desktop SSHD 7,200rpm hard drive mechanism with serial ATA (SATA) interface. These drives marry an 8GB SSD portion to a traditional 2GB HDD and prioritise important data, giving improved read and write times compared to a standard drive. While these drives do give you many of the benefits of an SSD with the storage of a traditional drive, the 8GB SSD capacity means improvements will be less noticeable if you work with typically large files such as HD video. They do however provide greatly improved read/write times in general use, including boot times.
These drives do not require any drivers and will work right away with any operating system and are compatible with any machine capable of housing a 3.5" SATA drive.
(Please note, with 21.5"/27" iMacs you will need to use the hard drive thermal sensor cable from your old drive to ensure the fans spin at the correct RPM speed. If you did not have a Seagate drive fitted previously you will need to purchase the Seagate Thermal Sensor Cable for your corresponding iMac range, as every manufacturer had a different connection type. If in doubt please contact us.)
