Hello guys,

I just want to show my last baby on the pictures. There is Microdisc controller inside, the case is aluminum with black top and red bottom. There is 5V psu included with the unit. Looking for Oric maniacs :) Video soon! :)

Indeed -beautiful. But I must confess that, thanks to Cumulus, I'm seriously considering selling my Oric microdrives ..

Because of that I have said - for real maniacs. When you carry this device in your hands it's like a jewelery. Next to Oric is real beauty :) I have Cumulus too, it's wonderful, but not so beautiful like that. But it's just my view and the people liking real drives :)

That's a really nice professional piece of equipment. I have to say I'm tempted, maybe if I ever get a second oric...

It's a very nice product, and jorodr products are fine but i think that today, the best solution for a disk drive is to be linked with an hxc product.
Making Sedoric disks is too difficult with a pc computer because you need to have one with W98 onboard maximum.

So coupling an hxc with a 3,5" enable us to create real disk from a virtual one on the hxc.
Or having 2*3.5" drives + hxc enable us to play a lot of games in real conditions.
It's like Thierry B. creations.
The top for real oric, stratos ...

But you can now balance ...
Cumulus vs [controller card + 3.5" disk*2 + hxc]

Thanks for the interests guys. It's real that this my drive is with less functionality, because there is not possibility for connecting HxC to it. It's just beautiful drive. The other solution is my DuoDrive. It's better than Cumulus, because it could use real floppies too. But Cumulus is much more cheap. These days I will show you another SD-card solution. I have it and it works excellent! :)
