Useful for Retro Tech
This review is from: New USB 1.44MB External Floppy Disk Drive
Pros: I bought this to load some old Win NT floppies and some REALLY old Macintosh floppies. Seemed to work fine on the 1.44mb floppies.
Cons: Won't read anything below 1.44MB floppies. You can fiddle around with the ID holes on the floppy itself (to trick the drive) but you might get some wonky corruption. Not the drive's fault, though.
Other Thoughts: Decent plug & play drive for an on-the-go technician like myself. If you're really into retro media (say, as a hobby), though, you should probably go with something more heavy duty & durable.
