For some strange reason, at my place of work which is usually, as you may have seen in various other reviews is rather up to date with the latest technology but one purpose which we still use, is issuing clients with data on floppy disks. Why this old practice used is beyond me, maybe we have a store of Sony Disks somewhere that we ordered en masse back in their heyday and are trying to use them.
Either way I am still using these Sony disks on a daily basis. At 1.44mb as you can gather the storage space is limited but they are used for word documents so clients can take away CV's, Letters and application forms and carry them around to the various computers in centre and take home with them at the end of the day. They serve this purpose well. Using the disk for images is not ideal but for a handful of Microsoft word documents the size is usuable and its an added back up. The problem for a lot of clients though is that they have newer computers at home with no floppy disks drives which caused them a problem.
In the years of using these though we have had very few problems with corrupt disks, data loss or disks that will not format. The odd one in every hundred has an issue but that's way under normal for this product. The disks save and load quickly and easily and given that they are in and out of different computers all day as well as being reused for nigh on the past few years they are very durable.
The Plastic coating is tight and hard and feels well made and will protect your data well.
All in all, these disks work wonders even if the format is dying out! Reliable, efficient and trustworthy!
