I've been buying these NEC FD1231-M floppy disk drives from various sellers on Amazon for awhile now.

Almost as good as Sony, these drives are well-made, durable, and look good in almost any black case.

Highly recommended for anyone who needs a new or replacement quality floppy drive. These are quite
useful for storing and transfering small files between computers, when writing a CD is a waste of
alot of disk space, and inconvenient, judging by the lack of good burning software out there. They
are quick and easy to use. The original 'sneaker net' lives on!

NEC Floppy Disk FD1231

This type of floppy drive is designed to allow styling a computer's face plate without the narrow rectangle of the standard 3.5 inch floppy drive. Style over function? This has never been done for 5.25 inch floppy drives, ZIP drives, or CD drives (aside from those who do not use a tray).

The eject button is not engaged or extended when there is no floppy disk in the drive. This is also true of the regular floppy disk drive as well. Other than that, this unit is identical to the regular floppy drive in using the same signal and power cables, its mounting holes are identical. Few computer manufactures use this style. Floppy disks are no longer as popular as they used to be.

The drive seems to be good quality but does not come with a faceplate. After recieving mine i emailed the seller and they told me Amazon wouldnt let them change the picture and refunded half my money (I decided to keep it since i can still use it for emergency bios flashing.) Just letting everyone know.
