3.5″ Floppy drives are great, there is nothing like putting a Floppy disk in the Amiga floppy drive and hearing it start reading the disk and waiting in anticipation for either that game, demo or application to load, the sound is very nostalgic!
However more and more floppy disks failing having been stuck in in an attic, garage or shed. You could clean them up but it does not always last. And what for the people who just want to access a load of games, demos or applications easily without having to mess around transferring ADF to floppy disks? Well the Gotek drive is what you need!
