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 satisfied with the quality, then I wouldn't sell it to someone else either, which is why I do not build goteks with OLED displays (with the exception sometimes of purely for 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
May I introduce you : the OMGotek inside :
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.
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?🙂
