5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: I bought this for my mother in law who needed to access her older files from a floppy disk after upgrading her computer. I wanted something reliable for the LEAST HASSLE possible after I gave it to her for Christmas. She LOVED it and it works flawlessly on both her desktop and notebook computers. Mission accomplished!

Cons: Cord can bit a bit longer so that you have the option of connecting it to a rear USB and mounting it on top of the computer tower for a semi-permanent location if need be.

Other Thoughts: Price was a TINY bit higher but the reliability is worth it. I did my homework here before purchasing.

5 out of 5 eggsReading old floppies

Pros: I was able to get data off floppies I've had laying around for more than two decades.

Cons: One or two disks, out of 50 or so, were unreadable. I'm going to assume this was an issue with the disks, though I have no other floppy drive to substantiate that.

Other Thoughts: The drive arrived in a timely fashion and worked as expected. I would definitely buy from this seller again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product.

Pros: "Plug-n-Play", portable, no additional power adapter is needed.

Cons: sometimes it wouldn't be able to detect the inserted floppy so what i did is to unplug and plug it in again in order to be detected. this isn't a big deal as long as you can extract some of your important files in old archives.

5 out of 5 eggsNeeded device for 3.5 foppies

Pros: Drive works as designed, good quality, portable and can be used with multiple computers. Works with Win 8.1. USB connections allows it to be connected only when needed and moved from my PC to my wife's then to our laptop. If you have 3.5 floppies but do not have a drive in your PC or Laptop then I recommend this device for you.
Patazon exceeded my expectations with shipping! I placed my order late on a Sunday night and the drive was delivered to my house by Wednesday.

Cons: NOT a CON: If you have not used floppies in a while remember that they are slow, really slow, to read and write compared to today's media. Be patient and allow ample time for the device to read/write to the floppy. Also if your floppies could be corrupted and may not be readable.

Other Thoughts: This is my first transaction with Patazon and it was very positive and I would highly recommend them. A few weeks after receiving my order they emailed to follow-up and make sure the drive met our expectations and to see if we had any concerns.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Lightweight, compact, USB-powered. True plug-and-play operation.

Cons: Not recognized as a floppy drive while trying to install Windows XP on my HP Mini 311 netbook.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the low purchase price if you need access to your floppies on modern computers.

5 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.5 Drive

Pros: Access to old data and files on 3.5" floppies. I viewed and copied data from 50 discs without problems. Works with Win 7 and 8.1 without any hassle, plug & play. Reasonable price.

Cons: At time it is a little bit slow to read discs. This may due to my old floppies or floppies in general. I am using Win 8.1 which came out way after floppies were considered obsolete so due to the nature of the media I did not count off for the slow speed.

Other Thoughts: This item was sold and shipped by Patazon - the package was delivered within 2 to 3 days from the day that I placed my order using the standard shipping method. I would order from them again.
Newer computers and MBs do not have a 3.5 drive cable connection for people who still have data on "old school" floppies so this device can be a life saver for those who still have data on 3.5 floppies.

3 out of 5 eggsTricky to use, no user guide

Pros: Worked with seven of my computers of varying age and brand, with either Win 7 Home, Win 7 Pro, or Win 10 build 100130

Cons: Does not have New Disk Inserted function like ordinary diskette drives. Requires special procedure to read the files on the diskette on all but my Toshiba laptop from 2012. Plug in unit, wait for device to be installed (fairly fast, first time only), open Devices and Printers. right click on USB diskette, click Browse Files, click drive A: or B:, whichever pops up (I don't have any computers with a normal diskette drive installed). To read a different diskette, insert it and right click on the USB diskette as before. Only one of my computers actually showed the diskette drive in Windows Explorer,

Other Thoughts: I have no way to tell if my particular unit just has a defect which causes it to not notify the computer that the disk has been changed (or installed), but I did see a lot of reviews that said their unit didn't work at all, which is just what it looks like if you expect it to work like a standard diskette drive.
