Each of these bad boys has a whopping 1.44MB of storage - just think how many .txt files you can store! 1000s, happy days :-D

It also states they are 100% Error Free which quite frankly is unheard of for Floppy Disks so if this is true it is a real breakthrough with this technology.

Complete with Lifetime Warranty for peace of mind - should get years of use from them.

Just 24.6p each, bargain!!! Don't all thank me at once ;-)

TBH I think they pretty much have - no new computer comes with a floppy drive these days. They will soon be in the history books forever - even more reason to buy one of these new sealed packs - collectors item, will be worth a fortune in 10 years time :-D

They still have their uses for me, my Yamaha Keyboard has a floppy disk drive for midi backup, and still use them on an Amiga 1200.

I can remember working late one night prepping some PCs for next day delivery. Had the covers off to upgrade RAM & was installing Office from FDD. Got to around disk 20 & hit the power button instead of eject... :oops:

Omg they are actually out of stock now! People do indeed still want/need floppy disks!

Right this is the official comeback of the 3.5" floppy disk starting right here! Long live floppys :-D

I can understand why WH Smith are struggling if this is the kind of stuff they sell.

Glad to see the back of these, created no end of issues with reading/writing, RIP!!

Very handy for bootable BIOS updates and such, there's not much call for floppies but always handy to keep a box in for hardware/firmware ops.
