I was wondering, does it really matter what 3 1/2 floppy drive i get for my computer? I mean, i'm not looking for a colorful or cool looking one, im just wondering if it matters data transfer wise. Also, im talking about the regular 1.38 mb floppy disks. Thanks.

There is not much difference between floppy drives.

Wow! I haven't used a floppy drive in 2 years now! Who needs floppy drives when you've got a CD burner? I use a CD-RW as a floppy drive.

Thanks for the info all. I was pretty sure that there couldn't be a major difference in performance, but i wasn't 100% sure. Thanks again.

Floppy still convenient when you need to update you BIOS.

Not necessarily! You can still boot from a CD (a CD-RW boot disc for example) or boot from a Zip disk. Hehe.
