I wouldnt get this unless you're in desperate need of a computer bay. My neighbor had a superdisk and it was a slug when compared to my internal zip. Oh and, zip disk are finally starting to get cheaper.
Great, so how much is shipping?

I'd recheck that price. I can find no mention of Axion selling an LS-120 drive on pricewatch, and their website lists one for over $100.
This was either a misprint or a very limited deal.

Just a word of caution, internal superdisk drives tend to break. They are real sensitive and if you switch computer parts somewhat frequently, you might want to reconsider buying one. My friends and I have been through at least 5 exchanges because they keep breaking down. Hell of a good drive though and comes in real handy when you and your friends all have drives.

ls-120 ide? I've had one for a while, it's stinking slow and it make your computer hang a bit when you are writing. Maybe the scsi one is better. This ide one I have broken down in 1 month and I got replacement. I also have 10+ superdisks, new never used--- Got too frustrated with waiting for the writes.

I thought SuperDisk was a great idea due to the fact that it acts as a floppy drive and a somewhat high storage media drive. I have one in my system now but have yet to use the Superdisk side of it. I was going to order another one for the new system I am building. I have no experienced any problems with my drive and I do swap components a lot.
Does anyone have anything positive to say about this drive? At $60 it is a lot more expensive then a standard floppy but I am not using any more IDE slots adding it.
How about a good substitute? Are there any good prices on Zip drives? Are these crap too?

Go to pricewatch and use the search string "ls-120", on page two, you will see the lowest prices (including Axion's) for the internal drives.
No need for anyone to tell me Zip drives are better...I own Two Zips and Zero LS-120's.
I just hope someone actually finds these things useful! http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif

Hmmm. Choosing them on basis of media Mbyte cost is no help as they are fairly similar. Best price for a five-pak Imation Superdisk (preformatted for Mac) is $32 shipped (avg $6.40 each). For ZIP disks, the best price I know is $33.80 for a six-pak shipped (avg $5.63 each, no limit, expires 7/31/2000).
By the way, I define "shipped" as what you have to pay in order to get the item shipped to you. I don't include rebates since you have to wait 10 weeks (or forever) to get them and thus they don't affect the "as shipped" price.
When the media costs are approx equal, it would be better to go with ZIP in order to benefit from its universal nature.

HEY!! You guys rember a couple of years ago when Buy.com was selling those suckers for $7.00? I should have picked up a dozen of them...ah well hindsight is 50-50
btw, since I bought my CD Burner...haven't even looked at a floppy.
07-22-2000, 10:29 AM
I agree that a CD burner is the way to go. I have hardly used my 100MB internal SCSI ZIP drive since I put in a CDR. Guess I should sell my ZIP drive and 16 disk and get some other toys instead.
