UK1541 - New Floppy Emulator for Commodore Computers
A new floppy drive emulator for C64/C128 and possibly other C= machines has appeared recently. Named UK1541 aka Ultimate Killer, it aims to challenge the market dominance of the powerful, but high-priced 1541Ultimate II. The device is being developed by well-known hardware maker Krzysztof Switajski. While the final price hasn't been decided yet, the current estimate is 55 EUR.
According to an in-depth review on Indie Retro News the product is still lacking in a few areas, but seems nevertheless very promising. I'll be keeping an eye on it for sure.
