>Mitsumi and Epson floppy drives are junk.
I dunno... I've had a 7-year-old Mitsumi on my CoCo for... well... 7 years
or so, it seems to be running fine... OS-9 loves that 80-tracks!!!

>Teac is just o. k.
Never had a Teac fail, either.

>The chassis is not as rugged (I can crush one in
>my hands) and not precise as I like when fitting parts into it and
>very scary sharp edges.

definately true-- just assembled one of them (that's what they wanted...)
Had to be careful to not cut myself.

>Aceropen stuff is not too bad

Uh, really? Last I knew, Aceropen was a division of Acer, which everything
I've seen is some of the nastiest junk in the world (read: worse than
Packard Bell)...

Just my $0.00002,
