- Get One of These!
- I've just received my SD2IEC and I'm impressed by every thing about it. First, it arrived lightning fast which, in these times of difficulty in shipping, is an astounding and pleasant result. Next is the absolute quality of this device! Incredible attention to detail in the product and in the documentation included with the device. Finally, the functionality of the device is fantastic. Yes, I have a collection of "real" 1541 and 1571 drives for my growing collection of C64/128s and the purist in my enjoys using them but, let's face it, they are slow and the disks are dubious some 40 years later. The SD2IEC allows enjoyment of the C64/128 and the preservation of the "real" drives. Brilliant product in every regard!
- Perfect for what it is - mini hard drive
- Excellent little device! It acts as a mini hard drive for your c64 that stores its data to an sd card. You can use it to run games and also programs/tools. One very useful program ia DraCopy which allows you to write programs/games to a floppy disk from the sd2iec sd card. This device isnt compatible with 100% of programs but if you have a floppy drive and this device, along with one or more floppy disks, and the enitre c64 disk library is at your fingertips.
- Got a 64? Get this!
If you had a C64 when you were young, you'll remember the waiting for the games to load from cassette.
This can be even more "fun" now if you're lucky enough to have a working C64 and hope that your old collection of tapes still work everytime you fish them out of the cupboard and the head alignment on the datasette isn't off.
This cool gadget does away with all that and lets you play your favourite games without all the hassle.
So glad I got this and wish I'd had this all those years ago.
- This SD2IEC is where it's at!
This is seriously one of the coolest items that you could ever get for the C64 or 128. Forget 30-year-old disks, forget elderly, 40MB hard drives... this gives you the best of all of those worlds in a solid state package.
Sure, SD2IECs have been around for a while, but what sets this one apart is the build quality. This thing feels like it would have been something that Commodore would've made, if they were still around and still doing anything with their 8-bit lineup. From the quality cabling, to the excellent construction, to the LEDs that work just like a real drives... right down to the little sticker on the front that says "Commodore." The textures and colors match, the SD card clicks into and out of place. And it SCREAMS with the Epyx Fastload Reloaded.
This is not a half-assed product, and is something I HIGHLY recommend for everyone that still uses a Commodore 8-bit machine.
