I know internal floppies are slow. I don't know enough to know if that is due to the read/write mechanics or the traditional floppy cable/mb mechanics. I need to get an external floppy drive. Is there any point to trying for a usb 2 vs a usb 1?
Any reccs on whether to go for a cheapie [$6-$25] or a brand name [$50-$150]? I'm thinking even if I have to buy 2 cheapies 'cause one breaks I'd probably be better off than buying a brand name. I checked out TEAC's floppy, but no mention of warranty - which would be the main reason to pay the big bucks.
