I have a late 2012 iMac 21.5" computer that had a 1TB 5400rpm drive that failed.  I did  a LOT of research on how to upgrade it.  Honestly, there were no definite posts that you could.  So let me tell you that it can be done.  I swapped my existing drive with a Samsung 850 EVO 1TB SSD and it worked perfectly.  The only issue was getting the screen removed from the casing.  After additional research, I settled on my daugther's guitar pick.  Although a bit tedious (I didn't want to crack the screen or damage any internal components), it worked perfectly.

Once the screen was removed, it was a quick four screws to change the drive.  I had no issues with the fans (Apple has some proprietary thermal computer / drive connection).  The computer works perfectly and is much, much faster than the old 5400RPM drive.  For $350, I have  a new, wicked fast computer that I'm very happy with.
