OK, it is about 3 quid more expensive (peanuts) but now I can actually get on with what I wanted to do in the first place, rather than battling with some rubbish that refused to work properly.
My only criticism is that the USB lead is rather short, less than 0.5 m. You can't stand it on a desktop machine and plug it in round the back for example. You've got to use the front USB's. This is why I have marked it down by 1*. But it is said by another reviewer to work with a USB extension lead. I haven't tried it yet, but I expect it will.
It is actually a TEAC drive inside, which probably says it all. If you want an external floppy drive, grab this one.
So, I am pleased to have been able to transfer those backups without fuss or hold-up onto up-to-date media. (Quite what I shall ever need to do with such historic data is another question.) My impression was that the USB drive accessed and read diskettes every bit as quickly as did the built-in drives of the PCs on which the back-ups were created. I have not tried the drive on a Windows 7 machine, as perhaps I should have done in order to contribute more than I have to this review.
1m USB 2.0 Extension Cable - Premium Quality / A Male to A Female / High Speed 480Mbps
This for the money works really well and has given no problems.
Summary. Don't waste your money on cheaper units. If you want a 3.5" USB floppy drive that really works with plug and play - buy this one!

Bought this floppy drive to access old disks that I had lying about (from early-mid 1990s). The drive plugs in to the PC using USB cable and in windows 7 works perfectly. Read morePublished 5 months ago by SLS
