I originally purchased the Targus External Floppy Drive from Staples, and prior to opening the package (thank goodness) I decided to check a comparison shopping site on line. I put in the product, and Buy.com was among the choices that popped up and also had the lowest price. I returned the first one back to the Staples and ordered it through Buy.com. Not sure what to expect as it was my first purchase from Buy.com, but it arrived on time and is the identical product, so I am very happy and will definately always check Buy.com from now on before making any other purchases.

The floppy drive in my PC died, and most computers don't have one anymore. With a hundred stored floppies, I figured it was time to transfer data to hard storage. It worked immediately when plugged into my old Sony PC and quickly transfers the floppy date to the hard drives and backup storage devices. Good deal and useful tool for someone who may need a floppy but doesn't want one integral in your machine!
