Fusion Drive Failure? November 15 2016
While we recognize Apple's innovation in utilizing solid state drives in conjunction with standard hard drives, we have to admit that it's mixing new technology with old. Hard drives are the most common component to fail in computers. Hard drive replacements are the top Mac repair we do. Sooner or later, the hard drive side of your fusion drive setup is going to fail. Recently, we've seen an influx in that happening. We highly recommend sticking to the much more reliable and dependable solid state drives and ditching the old spinning hard drives. They don't generate heat, there are no moving parts, and they're resistant to shock. They should last you the life of your computer.
So, we do replace these failed drives, and pretty much everyone opts for 100% solid state drives and forgetting about the old, traditional drives.
