External floppy Disk Drive - WANTED!

I would like to buy an external floppy Disk Drive...

I will consider anything but not a Roctec...

Please email me a picture of what you want to sell with a price.

I will not buy anything even remotely yellow or anything that makes strange noises... I really want one in nice condition and will pay (within reason) to reflect this...

I would prefer a boxed Cumana or a Sony or Amitek but hey, what you got?
UK only I guess to keep costs down.

Peter

Why not Roctec? I had this drive - silent and no any problem.

I've had nothing but bad experience with these drives - the belts go if you aren't lucky - and I have been unlucky... twice so I am steering clear of them from now on.
The Rotec does look nice though... (if your into external Floppy drives!)

I have an external drive, I dont think its yellowed, its been in storage so should still be in good condition. I will take a pic later and post it here and will let you know the make.

With CF cards & hard drives I dont see me ever needing it. Works fine as I tested it when I got all my Amiga kit out of storage a couple months back.

If you like it I will be happy to trade it for a couple of games or a CF card or something else Amiga related... I'm not really sure what its worth but if you are happy with it you could make me a cash offer...

I am in Kent also, where abouts are you? I am in Sevenoaks.

Steve.

Heres a pic, case is very clean. The front is very slightly yellowed hard to tell in the pic becuase it is very slight.

Sorry there is no branding on it so I dont know what make.

Let me know if its what you are looking for.

Steve.

PM Sent to Steve re: his drive.


If any one else has a Floppy drive for sale please still post details of it here - I am still interested in seeing what anyone else may have for sale.
