NEC/Iomega ZIP250????

NEC/Iomega ZIP250????

I have purchased what I thought was an Iomega Zip250 internal Atapi drive (New, OEM, no box) from a computer store, after I had installed it I became aware that it was infact a NEC Zip250 internal drive, (it came with Iomega software) ....... I have heard all about the Iomega "CLICK of DEATH" but can find no mention of it in relation to NEC, I haven't spoken to the store yet as I need to get some facts before I do, can anybody enlighten me about any of the above or any other issues relating to either drive ..... thanks in advance.

RE: NEC/Iomega ZIP250????

Your drive is likely nothing more than an OEM version.  Jumpers can be used to switch it to read IOMega or NEC if memory serves, been a while since I threw one around on the bench.

I wouldn't worry overmuch - if you're truly curious, register the thing for warranty :)
