Apple has determined that certain 1TB Seagate hard drives used in 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac systems may fail. These systems were sold between October 2009 and July 2011.

I think I'm up to 4 Seagate hard drive failures now. They're in loads of external drives and short of dismantling the product prior to purchase I've found it impossible to avoid them despite a wish to do so. I would never again knowingly purchase a Seagate product. At least Apple seem to be doing something about it.
