In case anyone is interested.
I have received my GoTEK and my initial impression is something between
neutral and positive.
I'm still running the stock firmware on it but plan to transition to
FlashFloppy (?) after my new soldering iron arrives. (My last one
didn't make a cross country move.)
I don't know if the GoTEK is itself slow or if it's a result of what the
computer was doing with it. — My only experience was trying to have a
Compaq System Utility Partition back itself up to the GoTEK. The first
""disk worked without a problem. The backup routine fails complaining
about a file after formatting the second disk. I suspect this may be
more source than the destination.
I'm sure there is a healthy dose of my ignorance of using the GoTEK.
There was zero documentation that came with it. Online searches turn up
a myriad of versions for the different models and it's all combining
into a … cesspool seems like the proper word.
I think I'm going to like the GoTEK as I get more experience with it. I
am planing on trading out the firmware and moding it to add an OLED
display so I'll have more information on what it's doing.
