5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: The drive arrived right away, well-packaged, and worked perfectly out of the box. Ancient floppies loaded just fine. I could copy off material and finally toss the disks. Some of my disks were formatted for Mac, and I was surprised to find that the disk drive worked with my Mac as well. Perfect!

Cons: All good so far

5 out of 5 eggsfast shipping easy to use too

Pros: I read the reviews before I purchased. Unlike others I am able to switch floppies WITHOUT unplugging the drive. it just plain works perfect. I am using Windows Vista home edition so maybe it works differently with other systems. but for me it's working great and super fast shipping

Cons: can't find any. it works perfectly. and super fast shipping can't beat the price.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great drive, does what it is supposed to.
Couldn't ask for more, helps me get work done.

Cons: Not a dealbreaker: USB cable not detachable from main unit -> requires tetris-ing to pack.

Other Thoughts: For those that say it doesn't work or complain that it doesn't read unless the floppy is already in the drive when you plug it in, the drive won't read the floppy till your computer tries to access it (at least on Windows). Thus when you plug it in with a floppy already inside, the computer sees the new disk when checking the drive and ends up reading it.

5 out of 5 eggsExternal Floppy Drive 9SIA1PU0FD9579

Pros: Came really fast, is nice and slim, and with some effort I figured out how to use it: I have Windows 8 with 64 and 32 bit. I put my floppy to be viewed into the drive. Then I plugged it into a USB port. I opened File Explorer on my task bar, then up in address bar I clicked on "computer" then “Floppy Disc Drive A.” Then I could see all the documents on the floppy, and could select the one to work with. To remove the floppy drive safely, go to icon at bottom of task bar called "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media and open it. Click on MITSUMI and then you can safely eject the external floppy drive.

Cons: It took a bit of time to figure out how to find the external floppy drive on my computer. I even re-booted once to make sure I could find it. Somebody on this comments thread had mentioned they could only read their floppy if they had first inserted it into the drive and THEN plugged it into a USB port. So that's what I did too.

Other Thoughts: I still have a lot of documents on old floppy discs and this way I can still get to them. i realize i need to put all of it onto flash drives, but until I do that, this is a great and cheap functioning solution!
