4 out of 5 eggsIt is what it is

Pros: It is a portable USB floppy drive that appears to be fairly well constructed. It has a 18 inch usb cable that is adequate for most users.

It is not fast, but after all it is a floppy drive. Sometimes you think that it isn't reading the disk, but if you wait eventually you will see the files.

If you are in need of a portable 1.44 Mb floppy drive then this drive fits that need. I bought it because more and more of the motherboards no longer support floppies and you never know when you need one.

Cons: It does not format 720K discs so if you need to format these disks you are out of luck.

Other Thoughts: A couple of times I had to eject and re-seat the disk before I was able to format it.

I also had a blank disk that took forever for the drive to recognized that the disk wasn't formatted. I don't think this was the fault of the drive, but just the nature of the floppy disks.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable!

Pros: Simple concept. Recognizable by WinXP.

Cons: Like the review title says, UNRELIABLE! Have purchased a total of 4 of these to use in my workplace, only one is still functional. The other 3 are trash!!!

Other Thoughts: Cheap and non-functional is not a bargain!!!

1 out of 5 eggsSabrent Floppy SBT-UFDB

Pros: it is black

Cons: The first unit I purchased stopped working 35 days after purchase. I do not use this much, so it did not provide much service. New Egg would not exchange it since it was past 30 days. I just got a replacement from the MFG and it came broken. :( I am not happy with this at all!

2 out of 5 eggsdidn't know what i was doing

Pros: it looks simple and easy but

Cons: if you purchase this you will have to purchase a slim drive to install to work. Other electronic stores that i can't type in did not have any. i guess i can't read and didn't understand the description external case it sounded like all i had to do is plug it in. i had to return it and pay shipping.
