    Question Amiga 500 SD HXC or Gotek?

    Hello

    I got an Amiga 500 and am looking to get a Floppy Drive Emulator but am not sure what brand to get I been looking at the Gotek and SD HXC.

    Are there any pros and cons to either drive emulators?

    Not really. HXC is better if you plan to use it on multiple systems. Otherwise the Gotek is a great budget solution. You can also flash Gotek's with HxC software, but you have to buy the firmware for about 10. It also now supoorts a 2 line LCD to show adf filenames.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Is it too late to ask to not butcher the Amiga case?

    That's a long argument with most people either firmly in the case mod or keep it original camps. Personally it depends. I would and have modified some of my Amiga cases to fit Gotek and other hardware. But I have spare untouched backups of the same models so I've still got a good backup.
