Being able to read Apple diskettes, REAL 6502, . . .

One of the computer labs at the college tried to use them as a transition
step in switching to PCs. Nice idea, but a lot of copy-protected disks
were inaccessible, and they had a SEVENTY PERCENT DOA rate on the
Quadlinks! Even the replacement ones from Quadram had a 70% DOA rate!
One of them that I looked at that was returned "repaired" had one of the
connectors mounted backwards, which COULD NOT have been tested.

If you're into Tandy, look for the Diamond Trackstar128. It had a MUCH
better reliability than the Quadlinks.
