I use one daily, and it's a fantastic piece of kit. It's used on my C64, Plus/4 & VIC-20.

     I saw it demonstrated at last year's CommVEx.  It's very nice, but way over my price range, especially when you consider the U.S./Euro exchange rate.  I have the 1541-iii but don't prefer it, due to its lack of JiffyDOS compatibility (for now).  I have the uIEC/SD, but it lacks easy-to-use bits, like dipswitches (however Jim Brain says he will rectify that).  Right now, my favorite is the SD2IEC with daughterboard.

     But with JiffyDOS, they would not load as slowly.  In fact, some would load very speedily.

                  Depending on the game,
