    2 Defective SEI drives

    Sorry I don't have good news. I bought two brand new Alphas late last year. Both have failed within a few hours of one another. The starboard drive sheared a shaft at 40knots and 3500 rpm. The port drive stopped going into reverse. They both failed within 10 hours of one another. Neither was abused or pushed hard.

    The starboard drive had to go back to SEI twice before it was repaired. The port drive is on its way back now.

    I am not optimistic that these drives will have much of a lifespan. Undoubtedly they will fail again...moments after the warranty expires.
