Hi there,

It will be awhile before they drop the price seeing has how they just came out with it.

I guess it all depends on how bad you want one and how long you want to wait to get one.

I personally would buy the 750mb one. It would be awhile before you would upgrade. And depending on your needs you can just buy more of the the 250 or even the 100mb disks until the prices drop on the 750mb disks.

I have a 250mb drive and I have about 20 250mb disks that I use just for archiving family pictures, and important info like taxes, wills, birth records ect .

I have about 150 100mb disks that I use for other various things, software I download, favorites, psp tubes, psp brishes, ect.

If I bought a 750mb drive I would just rotate everything up one.

Hi there,

Well it is on my system. I don't see a diffrence between it and my CD ROM as far as opening files.

Running Windows ME 667 Celeron with 64mb of RAM

But of course just because it works fast on my computer doesn't mean that it will be the same for everyone.

A lot of people hate Windows ME or had issues with it. Works fine for me. I'm sure it's the same with Zip drives.

Note that if you get a 750mb zip drive, they will NOT be able to format or write to 100mb zip disks. Although they will still be able to read from them.
