Not the model I wanted

Germain, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for an identical drive so I could try and swap out controllers and recover data from a failed Seagate drive. This wasn't close to what I had. A Google search for the model number I had listed this unit as a top match. So be careful in checking model numbers and specs. Some vendors clearly insert keywords into inconspicuous places.

DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM ZEGA DIGITAL

Ashwin, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: Internal Drive arrived a week apart from my other parts, and I found that there was already a Windows 8 account installed on there which was password protected. On top of that, I visited the Zega Digital website and it gave my laptop malware. Please do not trust this company!

Always check

Mr G A Sowden, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: As someone else has already said, Check the model number of what you get, I had the same issue, ordered this drive and was sent a 3 GB/s model instead of the one ordered. Returned straight away and now waiting on the refund.

very poor

Mr. Mark Anthony Lycett "The Truth", Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: Do not purchase this product. It made so much sound when I had it fitted that the shop asked me if it was second hand. I replied supposedly not so they did a date check on it. date of manufacture was 2007. Hmmmmm very suspect. You have been warned.

Very noisy!

Lvy, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: The goods arrived securely packed and I have no criticism of the supplier. However, the drive is very, very noisy. We can't stand the noise and I am going to ask to change it. Very disappointing. Do not buy this drive!

Loud and Slow-Worst Experience EVER!!

Tim B Flatt, Amazon
25 July 2013
  • Summary: Arrived in in time as expected, but as soon as I installed Windows onto it , it started making a painfully loud scratching clicking noise, which is so annoying when the pc is on the table, and to make matters worse its painfully slow, when using windows it constantly freezes up and the clicking noise gets louder and louder and loading times are a disaster, do yourself a favour and miss this one out!
