Has anyone ever bought any HD or other computer equipment from Worldspan Ltd?

They advertise in Computer Video every month.

My experience with them so far is not good...

I bought an IBM Deskstar 7200rpm 30GB disk there recently with no problem.

(For reference - it is http://www.span.com/ )

(NB: I have no connection with them - just a customer who used them once - no issues.)

Happier now - I've received the order.

No instructions or mounting screws with it though?

Hi Ger,

That's because you have purchased an OEM drive, if you wanted the retail kit you would have paid a *lot* more.

Four screws and a trip to www.ibm.com/storage is well worth the saving...

Cheers,

Aye, I suppose you're right there.

I've just been to the Maxtor website actually, and got instructions and software from there.

Now, where can I nick some screws from...

I bought a bag of mixed PC-type screws from a computer fair a while ago; best couple of quid I spent in ages... !

We bought a pair of cased ultra-wide SCSI's inc PSU and lead to connect to a Mac M100 and had no problems.
they were quick, built it for free and were really helpfull
I'd use them again.

As co-incidence would have it: the Deskstar 30GB drive I bought from them in April (referred to above) has just failed - they offered to take it back, and I have just posted it to them.

Acid test, live under the spotlight on this forum, eh?

I will report here how they respond. Come on Worldspan, don't let me down...
