Stock TI Floppy Disk Drives

Recommended Posts

I picked up an additional PEB today and it had a different Floppy Disk Drive than my other PEB has.

 

It has a push button on the front to apparently release the Floppy Disk where my other one has the little handle or lever that you commonly see to lift up the door with.

 

Both appear to be stock TI Floppy Drives.

 

I am going to do Dual Floppies in one PEB and a stock in the other but as far as the stock floppy drives go... Is one model preferred over the other?

Put a disk in the one with the push button and see how far it can fling the disk when you hit the release! It was always fun remembering to have your hand positioned to stop the disk from being flung across the table with mine BITD. Those are MPI Model 51 drives, the other ones are Shugart. The MPI drives are really good drives, so long as you don't mind the disk-flinger door (I liked it). The Shugarts are good too--so it really comes down to which look you prefer.
