Wasn't the issue with the 27" models?
The 1 TB Seagate drives used in the 2011 27" models were the subject of a recall by Apple. Apple replaced them free of charge. The 500 GB Seagate drives used in the 21.5" 2011 models were not the subject of a recall, however, they too were problematic as I stated above. Apple replaced mine for free (Apple Care) but they replaced it with a Western Digital model. Seagate drives in general are less reliable as shown in many tests and history of repairs. Unfortunately, my late 2013 27" iMac has a 1 TB Seagate Barracuda drive installed. One reason why I'm kind of paranoid about making backups.
