This is essential if you want to use a Gotek drive with your Amiga.
It's discrete, has jumpers that allow you to set the default behaviour and works flawlessly.
I'm able to use the Gotek drive as DF1/DF2 if I'm working on Workbench, and as DF0 if I want to boot games that I don't have my floppies at hand for.
If you have a GOTEK and an AMIGA, this is a must.
