I have two of them, but haven’t considered using them on a DEC system. Then again, I’ve barely ever used a floppy on my DEC hardware, and then it was 20+ years ago.
My target is my Amiga 600 and Amiga 1200. I have an old one I picked up at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo five or so years ago, and a new one that I got from AmigaKit recently. The AmigaKit one is nice, as I had it upgraded with the OLED and dial. They’re very nice. I really like being able to use a USB stick, rather than a floppy.
The next computer I’d like to see about converting to flash will probably be an Apple ][e. My C-64 has used SD cards for year.
