1-0 out of 5 stars No updates... ever from Lacie
Lacie are getting the wrong end of the stick from me. The fact that this company refuses to update drivers for old hardware for new versions of an OS is simply a farce in this day and age.

Lacie refuse to develop drivers to support a new OS or even an update. Back in the days of NT they would not even bring out Win2k support for the systems. When XP arrived most of their hardware the year before was simply left to dry up with age.

In short if you buy Lacie then it will only perform to your current system specs. Any changes to the OS and chances are you will be shelling out more doe for new hardware.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Work Saver
Recently I bought a computer which doesn't have a floppy drive at all. Considering the floppies full of info I collected over eight years, I was dismayed! So last Friday I came across this product - after considerable comparison - and ordered it. It cost only $25.34 at the time. I chose the super saver shipping - 5 to 9 days - ad here I have it today, Tuesday, already. Using Windows XP, I didn't need the installation CD. I just plugged the USB cord in and that was it. However, there was no automatic ikon on the desktop, so I thought it didn't work. I searched My Computer's Hardware listing and found my new floppy drive..dragged the ikon over onto the desktop, and all was well. It works! It's lightweight and looks like a slim cigarette case...it's fragile. You shouldn't shake it, and the humidity in the room may be a problem, but one can take precautions.
I'm very happy with the price, the fast service, and the way it works. Even at today's higher list price, it still is a steal.

I'm really relieved to know I can access all of my old floppies.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use!!
I got it, plugged it in and it works!And no power cord is great since I need to take it to school and that's just one less thing I need to carry around.Can't express how pleased I am (especially when you look at the price)!

5-0 out of 5 stars PLUG AND GO
ORDERED DRIVE ON WEDS.FROM TECHDEPOT WITH 2DAY SHIP. RECEIVED ON FRI..WITH WINXP(NO DRIVER REQ'D), I PLUGGED IN TO USB AND COMPUTER RECOGNIZED IT AND IMMEDIATLY READ FLOPPY TO DESIRED APPLICATION.WORTH THE MONEY.ONLY THING WAS THE SHIPPING BOX WAS BIGGER THAN THE ITEM BOX AND THERE WAS VERY LITTLE PACKING MATERIAL FOR CUSHIONING PRODUCT, HOWEVER THERE WAS NO DAMAGE.

This drive works great with my laptop (PC). Cable is about 18" which is fine for my needs. Very slim and the eject button pops the disk out quite far, no digging to get to it.

5-0 out of 5 stars great product!!
works great and with speed!!no installation needed for Windows XP............like the small size, when not in use-store right on desk next to monitor!

1-0 out of 5 stars A cautionary note to Mac users runniing Mac OS 10.3.5
This drive certainly looks good--very light-weight, plug-and-play, powered through the USB cord itself, and thin enough to stash in even an iBook sleeve case.And it's reasonably priced.Unfortunately it doesn't work on my two G4 computers, both running Mac OS 10.3.5.My computers recognize the drive as being on the USB circuit (via System Profile), but the drive just won't mount.No drive icon on the desktop, no joy.I've tested the device by connectiing it directly to a powered USB hub and then connected it directly to each computer: it simply will not mount.The drive's LED lights up and the diskette whirs, but the drive's desktop icon never appears. I may have a faulty drive OR the drive may be incompatible with the drivers of Mac OS 10.3.5.I'll update this later if I ever find out.

One problem for ALL Mac users with USB keyboards: the drive does not get enough juice when plugged into the keyboard USB port; too bad since that's the logical port to use.At least I got a pop-up window alert about that.

The device would be terrific accessory for an iBook or PowerBook.But not until Y.E. Data can get this sucker to mount.

5-0 out of 5 stars what else can you ask for???
Works great. after all how difficult could it be to make a good floppy drive.
I was thinking of getting a used one, but this one is cheaper and gives peace of mind.

- compared it with sony external usb and found this one cheaper.
- very sturdy, dropped couple of times but it still works.
- very plug and play.
- never gave me a chance to complain.
- works comparaeable to my sony vaio integrated floopy drive

4-0 out of 5 stars Good product
Nothing fancy - does the job at a good price.

4-0 out of 5 stars pleasant surprise
I had heard of people having problems with this drive, so I was a little wary when it arrived, but I had no reason to be. It worked in true Plug-and-Play fashion with no problems whatsoever. The slim, lightweight design is perfectly suited to my laptop, it records fast enough that i don't sit there forever tapping my fingers, and does everything I require. Definitely worth the purchase. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Portable & Nice
I bought this drive along with a Compaq centrino notebook, it comes in black with a driver CD that you probably won't need if your OS is Windows XP (both Pro or HE).
Drive speed is faster than classic drives, and it's sleek design matched the centrino design of my notebook, however, the manufacturer released a titanium version of the same drive (SmartDisk FDUSB-TM2) which better matches Compaq, Toshiba and Sony centrino notebooks.

1-0 out of 5 stars They don't bother telling you...
They don't bother telling you in the product description that this floppy drive can't be used to boot your computer system from this drive........Had to find out the hard way after scanning the files on the driver disk and users manual where it's noted in small print.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
Works great.Part of the reason I got this was because it was so small.However, because it was so small there is no extra room between the disk and the drive.One of my disks got stuck in there because the disk label had peeled up slightly and got snagged in the drive.I was able to retrieve my disk with pliers.Admittedly, this is not a defect of the drive but something to take into consideration. ...

The computer products AND virtually all add-ons are ABYSMAL. If you don't believe me, I DARE you to buy any computer productthey produce. Some people have success with them, but I don't know who they are. The company that provides software for all my company's employees, (STENOGRAPH) tells every Stenographer: "DO NOT BUY ANY SONY COMPUTER PRODUCTS AND EXPECT THEM TO WORK WITH OUR SOFTWARE".

2-0 out of 5 stars Too Slooowwww....
I bought this floppy drive because I have anew Mac G5 who doesn't have a floppy drive built in it.

The drive was very easy to install (at least on a Mac). You just have to plug the USB cable into your computer and wait fo the drive to appear on your Desktop. There was no need of CDs or downloads or any kind of installation. The only problem that I encountered was that It took a few minutes for the drive to appear in my computer. Every time I poped a floppy drive I had to wait exactly 1 minute for the disk to appear. And also when I opened a document inside my floppy it took forever for the document to open.

I don't know how fast are any other floppy drives out there, but I found this one extremly slow.

If you are going to buy this product just for transporting documents from one computer to another, maybe you should just use e-mails... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Satisfied Customer
Love the three different colored face plates and buttons,with these it will match any computer case, that was a great idea. The drive works fine easy install,the only problem was with my floppy discs themselves wich are not made by Sony a few refused to copy information,actually they all did at first until I down loaded a install utility for floppies from Intel, shouldn't they copy info automatically?

5-0 out of 5 stars It's not the technical aspect...
The "granite" faceplate matches the Antec SLK3700AMB case perfectly. It's more of a bronze color. I never imagined there would be a drive that matched that case, much less a Sony. If you care at all how nice a case looks, or if you're a mom-and-pop PC shop that wants to sell computers in that good-lookin' case, this is the floppy drive to get.

5-0 out of 5 stars Manufactured by the Inventor of the Floppy
This is the retail box floppy sold by the inventor of the floppy disk - Sony.I agree you can buy these items at 10% less in other online stores.That is, you are getting an OEM from them - bare drives packaged in bubble wrap.That's it.If it were half the price, then sure buy it.But think about the savings you think you're getting from them - you still pay for shipping and/or taxes.This comes with free shipping and no tax, get the unit with something else and you're all set.

Amazon is offering this retail unit at a good price.For a little bit more, you are getting a sealed unit from the manufacturer box which contains a manual and installation instrutions (which some might need) and two extra faceplates and buttons in color granite (gray) and matte black - which they call as the "color kit".This is especially helpful for people who want to customize the look of their PC.What I did was to mix and match the faceplate and buttons.Why stick with one color throughout.

Frankly, I don't believe in the Sony quality brand anymore as I've experienced with their other products.However, I have to admit that the brand still gives a good impression.All the included faceplates have the Sony brand molded which makes it even more classy to look at and when installed in the PC case.This makes it better than getting any floppy that looks as generic as it can be.

Yes, this is just a floppy.But you're only getting one, right?Make it worthwhile and get from the inventor that offers the best extras in the box.

It is a floppy drive. You plug it in and it works.Enough said. ... Read more
