That's the one I use since July 2020, downside is it must be plugged to the mains. Alleged benefits :

Did you get yours with acrylic glass cover ?

That gif was cool. No this was actually a volcano meant as feature for fish tank. Rather than pumping water I supplied it smoke from a mini fog machine I built using an ecig. It was well received lol.

UMSA does not require mains power? It is only 5V input and can be run off USB port from a computer - in my case a laptop. It performed as good as my makeshift cable but I liked how it automatically reverted to RGB input on power up and easy to add sound.

Mine came without a case. The acrylic is just 1 sheet on either side? I'm hoping a good friend will be able to print me a 3D enclosure for it.

It's optional, granted. I bought a 5V 2A mains adapter along with the UMSA, so, for the moment, I'll just keep using it. Maybe using a USB hub itself plugged to the mains could consist in a good compromise but if it works for you that way, all good.

The French company I bought it from didn't have the 3D enclosure for sale (UMSA is discontinued from their online shop anyway). Just googled a hobbyist project web site. johnyz designed one on his own initiative. Check it here. He shares the design publicly for anyone of us to have the case printed from a local 3D printer workshop if needed (archive includes pictures and Fusion 360 project files). Until then, I've wrapped mine inside a folded microfiber cloth to prevent the dust from gathering in. If you pass him over said archive, make that two .

Looks great. Me and mini Havie (although he is probably about my height now) tried making a remote control car using lego mindstorms and then put a phone in place to stream the view to a pc which he programmed to control the car.. still a work in progress, sort of worked but no where as near as fun this!

I made an order from APC&TCP. Arrived yesterday.

I like my new TLS mouse mat, it is lovely as I really love the game and have it boxed:


Flyin' High with all the datadisks:


Both parts of Marblelous. 1 is floppy, 2 is CD:


Pictris and Forest Dump forever:



Okay, everything was cheap and I was not expecting any wonders. But this really dissaponted me:

Burnt CDs without surface print and it two cases one sided inkjet paper supplying a jewel case inlay. The media looks like an office verbatim backup, this is nothing I would call original package and I could make the same in 10 minutes anytime At least Marblelous 2 and Flying High in DVD boxes have some printed CD surface, although there is not a sign of a manual or something.

Browsing AliExpress I bought a Gotek for my A4000 on a whim. Butchered 2 USB A cables and installed Flash Floppy. Seems to work nice. I had a OLED display in stock so I added that.

Now to decide how to install it. Do I add it under my 3.5" drive or replace the 3.5"? Can't remember the last time I used a real floppy and space is limited in an A4000...

If I replace the drive I will probably need to 3D print a blanking plate.
