IT WORKS! was worried that it had been tossed around for years..
6 October 2012
Summary: I'm happy - only used it once because that's all I needed it for, but I was mainly just happy that it worked! I 'shook' it for a sec after taking it out of the packaging heard something DIFFERENT.. nothing! No rattling, pieces, etc.
Summary: This uses the standard 34 pin floppy interface, it is NOT EIDE as stated in the ad. EIDE and IDE are for "Integrated Device Electronics" and is/was the replacement for most hard drives from the MFM/RLL days and use a 40 (or 80) pin cable, not 34 pins.
Summary: I can only speak for the good name of the floppy drive since any Sony product I have ever purchased has been excellent. Unfortunately, I did not realize this product was an internal drive which requires knowledge and courage for installing the device.
Summary: My wife and I are real pleased with the 3.5 inch floppy drive [Sony MPF920-Z/CU1 Internal]. The customer service was nice, the delivery was as promised and the merchandise is super. I am a do-it-yourselfer type person. It would have been nice if brief instructions for installation had been included.
