Not the model I wanted
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.
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!
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.
Summary: Bought this to back up a failing Seagate 250 gb Hard drive. Managed to recover most of my data . Really disappointed in this drive as it was being used just to backup data as my main HD is a SSD . This was disconnected for at least 2 months on reconnecting it failed to be recognised on 3 machines I cannot recommend this product
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.
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!
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!
Summary: segate is very third class HDD manufacturer I m also user my HDD have been replaced 3 time and I have seen so many customer at there service center for complaint/replacing 5 time or more within warranty period 5 year, 3 year and so on and very very care less customer service and zero email reply . IN MY OPINION THIRD CLASS HDD SUPPLIER CO. IN INDIAN MARKET.
