Feedback from happy customers

We were looking to replace an obsolete HD in a vintage custom computer (GML Automation) to create a vintage audio mixing desk. DREM proved to be the magical solution to a potential nightmare problem.
DREM has better features than the competition, and the best customer service anywhere. Simply a brilliant product – we’ve already bought four of them!
