which floppy emulator to buy?

Post by thesofa2 »

OK, so I have a 3 STFMs and an STE, mostly with broken or dodgy floppy drives and I have two external disc drives, I am thinking of upgrading my floppies to emulators, setting aside cost should I go for HxC or Gotek or Goex, does one of them outperform the other to any extent?
What about ease of installation?
Are there any problems with any TOS version, my machines vary from tos1.00 to TOS 2.06?
Advice is very much appreciated.
Thank you.
Edit, having just read this thread viewtopic.php?f=33&t=4020&fbclid=IwAR0G ... 9aK67IZFUc
think GoteK is out of the running!!

I don't understand, according to your previous post (viewtopic.php?p=23996#p23996) you already have an SD HxC Rev F ?
Or maybe i am just writing to a very clever bot ? :lol:

That one is in my TT, I was wondering about other choices for the STE and STFMs.
BTW, I am not a robot!

It's a Gotek clone, so yes. It was tested with the HxC firmware.
