I just purchased 50 brand new 5.25" DD floppy disks from http://www.floppydisk.com

They arrived and they well exceeded my expectations, no mould, just new looking cookie and new glossy black sleaves with no stickers on them at all.

Just letting collectors know that you can still get new old stock floppies of various kinds.

They have cheap 5.25" in grey sleaves but I went for black, more traditional appeal.

SD cards are invaluable but they just dont have track changes and the occasional R/W head hammering sounds.

I did email the suppler a couple of times before purchase and got quick replies, I was told they are new old stock floppies.

Yes, retro-computing is not the same without those. :) A useful link, thanks.

Very cool, thanks for the link... :)

Unless you buy this customised Gotek for the Amiga (with Amiga disk sounds - lol! I guess someone had to!) :roll:

Shipping was around $25 , sorry forgot exact amount but if you buy a decent amount its good. They arrived after about 10 days.

You will have to got to the website and start through the payment process to get exact price.it will tell you the exact NZD amount, well before you hit purchase,


The disks I got are perfect.
