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.
