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.
