Gearing up for RetroChallenge!
These beauties just came in the mail:
Why buy one when you can buy 10 at 10 times the price? $20 on ebay seemed like pretty good deal. I've had good luck with zip drives. They are easy to find at thrift stores, and protocols span from SCSI to ATA to USB which makes them good for data transfer between old and new systems. They work great as a boot drive for classic macs (back to the Macintosh Plus) and let you organize a lot of data in a small space. I've had enough CDs fail that I actually prefer these guys for long term storage of retro software.
