oops, my bad. I answered for the disks when you meant the drives. I also think the same applies for the drives as well.
I have a NEC Zip 100 IDE in my system, but the bios recognizes is as an Iomega, even the firmware indicates it's IOMEGA.
So, although I am not sure, it seems that IOMEGA also manufactures the drives for NEC. Besides, I never had any problem with this drive, or my USB Zip. No Click of Death issues in the past 4 years I've owned it.

I got a SCSI ORB Drive, manuf. - Castlewood. At first I was impressed by it's speed in comparison to Iomega's JAZ Drive. Then I started getting corrupt disk clicking. After loosing two disk worth of data, I just stuck the ORB drive in the closet and reconnected my JAZ. The ORB does give 20 MB DTR (Ultra SCSI) compared to the Jaz 10 MB DTR (Fast SCSI). I would vote for the ORB, but I don't trust the cheap disk.

Hmmm... Not that is really matters but the Zip 250 in the office here (OEM) says "Iomega" on the front bezel but "NEC" on the top of the drive. Maybe different people make the different types of drives.
