I've used the FluxEngine to read 3.5 inch, 5.25 inch and 8 inch floppies.
I've used the GreasleWeazle to read 5.25 inch floppies so far.
I haven't tried either of them to write floppies yet.
The main difference in workflow is that the gw software only writes
one type of format - SCP, so you will need another tool to convert to
raw or a different format, if you can't use scp directly.

Currently, the thing I find most interesting right now is that the
FluxEngine software can use GreaseWeazle hardware (supposedly for most
things) - I haven't tested that yet.
