OMGotek: In other words, how not to do it

Someone asked me if I wanted to take a look at his Gotek drive because it didn't work anymore.

Of course, even if you didn't buy it from me, I'll take a look at that drive for you.
How glad I am that I did, not so much because I was able to fix it.
But because I now know what the price difference is that you pay when you buy a drive from me.
Even if it looks the same, it doesn't mean the quality is the same.

I am not going to claim here that my work is the best you can get, but I will always deliver the quality as I would like to receive it myself.
In other words, if I was not behind the quality stand then I sell it either, which is why I no OLED displays built (with the exception sometimes of myself)
I'm amazed at people who have a completely pimped with little margin Gotek can deliver, since completely pimping it up is a chore that you can't do in 5 minutes if you work a little meticulous ... right ... that

Mag ik u even voorstellen : de OMGotek van binnen :

Now of course it's easy to chat if you only show how someone else is doing:

With this one, take a look at the Gotek-retro.eu version of the upgraded Gotek floppy drive emulator.

Alle polen zijn met krimpkous gefixeerd, gebundeld
en e netjes onder de printplaat weg gewerkt.

draden zijn gefixeerd met een beetje hotglue
De hotglue is platgedrukt zodat deze vrij is.

Door de Display van de PCB los te halen kan een
grotere display worden ingebouwd.
Zelfs zonder Hotglue kan deze worden gefixeerd.

uitgeleverd.

The next time you look for a Gotek floppy drive emulator, remember that the price difference often has to come from somewhere.
And even if you don't always see it on the outside, there is often a difference in the quality of the delivered!

Are they both functional: I'm sure they both will work, but ask yourself, how safe do you feel in a car glued together with hot glue when you're cruising down the highway at 120 km/h?🙂
