$10 bucks for a NEC floppy drive... sounds like a no brainer. Buy it. NEC is a good name brand in my book.

Yeah but Im a little worried about what one of the reviews say about it not comming with a bottom cover. Would that be a problem?

if you have an old pc laying around rip the floppy from that. that's what i did with my computer and i also painted it black to go with everything else. the only time i use it is if someone has a problem with a program or homework and thats it :P

a floppy is a floppy is a floppy...unless it is broken. still, 10 bux doesnt sound like too shabby of a deal for a floppy...shame you dont live near me as i throw many of them out (as im sure many other people do) ...its kinda sad, but not many people have use for them.

I lived without a floppy drive for about a year.
I don't think they r useful any more especially when we have cd writers.
CDs costs less and are more reliable.

I never worry about floppy brands, I hardly use them, if at all.
