    Utter garbage

    unit performance was very spotty, worked with some PCs, not others. then failed completely within 6 mos of purchase. Sabrent ignored multiple attempts to obtain service within warranty period. Read more

    1 out of 5 eggs DOA

    Pros: None

    Cons: DOA -- similar bytecc unit (BT-144) also dead after a couple uses, both bytecc and sabrent units appear to be sourced from same OEM

    Bottom Line: look elsewhere for your legacy computing needs ...

    4 out of 5 eggs It is what it is

    Pros: It is a portable USB floppy drive that appears to be fairly well constructed. It has a 18 inch usb cable that is adequate for most users.

    It is not fast, but after all it is a floppy drive. Sometimes you think that it isn't reading the disk, but if you wait eventually you will see the files.

    If you are in need of a portable 1.44 Mb floppy drive then this drive fits that need. I bought it because more and more of the motherboards no longer support floppies and you never know when you need one.

    Cons: It does not format 720K discs so if you need to format these disks you are out of luck.

    Bottom Line: A couple of times I had to eject and re-seat the disk before I was able to format it.

    I also had a blank disk that took forever for the drive to recognized that the disk wasn't formatted. I don't think this was the fault of the drive, but just the nature of the floppy disks.

    1 out of 5 eggs trash

    Pros: cheap

    Cons: worked for 23 days and then died. luckily still under newegg warranty. would not purchase this brand of floppy again with my experience and the other user reviews posted here.

    Bottom Line: check out all of the other reviews and you will see that my experience is not an isolated issue

    1 out of 5 eggs Unreliable!

    Pros: Simple concept. Recognizable by WinXP.

    Cons: Like the review title says, UNRELIABLE! Have purchased a total of 4 of these to use in my workplace, only one is still functional. The other 3 are trash!!!

    Bottom Line: Cheap and non-functional is not a bargain!!!

    1 out of 5 eggs Sabrent Floppy SBT-UFDB

    Pros: it is black

    Cons: The first unit I purchased stopped working 35 days after purchase. I do not use this much, so it did not provide much service. New Egg would not exchange it since it was past 30 days. I just got a replacement from the MFG and it came broken. :( I am not happy with this at all!
