2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Ordered 2, one didn't work. Not worth sending in for an RMA as postage would cost as much as the drive

Cons: One DOA, not worth returning as it would cost what the drive was worth, just ordered another drive later.

3 out of 5 eggs*NEEDS IDE, NOT SATA.

Pros: It comes with silver, white, and black. It's easy to install, if you have IDE.

Cons: When I opened the box, I face-palmed, because it was IDE, not SATA. I REALLY should have known it was IDE, not SATA. I had to buy a whole new IDE controller, and cables.

Other Thoughts: If I had had IDE, I would give this 4-5 Stars. I probably would not recommend this.

2 out of 5 eggsI guess it works. Possibly.

Pros: Works. Haven't done much testing for cross readability, but AFAIK it is an adequate drive.

Cons: Comes with three bezels (one reason I bought it). The silver one comes broken.

Other Thoughts: Way to give floppy drives a bad name. I wish I had a quality drive around before I bought this one.

1 out of 5 eggsstink grit drive

Pros: you can un stink it

Cons: This floppy stunk right out of the box. I was afraid that I was not going to be able to use it due to it being constructed out of chinese fertilizer toxic stink plastic, but it turned out to be the grease used inside was almost as bad. opened up brand new drive and inside all surfaces are covered in what looks like some kind of WELDING GRIT a gritty yellowbrownish contamination on all horizontal surfaces. I disassembled the drive down to the springs, cleaned everything including the bad grease off, relubed it with american, and put it back together and now it is no longer apt to stink up this nice new rack server and or the whole room its in. it was a plus to not have chinese stink plastic in it but the insides... all gunked up... never seen anything like the insides of this "new" drive before...

1 out of 5 eggsTwo drives, neither work consistently.

Pros: Internal floppy drive for those who still need it.

Cons: Completely unreliable, to the point of uselessness. I ordered two of these, and both of them exhibit read errors, usually CRC failures. The disks work fine in my USB floppy drive on another computer. I tried these with different floppy cables and different floppy controllers. No setup would convince these drives to reliably read my known-good (verified with Spinrite, even) floppy disks.

Other Thoughts: The two drives that came were in the same cardboard box, but had different faceplates. The LED panel was larger one one, and in a different spot. The data cable connector and power connectors were on different spots. BYTECC must be grabbing whatever they can, without any sort of quality control, shoving them in boxes, and shipping them.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent drive

Pros: Fast, works, and does what it is supposed to do. Overall quite happy

Cons: Doesn't come with a floppy cable. A little flimsy where the floppy cable connects to the drive

Other Thoughts: Got my floppy cable free from a friend. Also be sure your motherboard has a floppy controller interface which newer boards are being made without them.
