400 DM, holy poo. Hardware really was expensive back then.

Please understand - this hobby is not about usefulness or what's cheapest/fastest/most efficient/easiest. Actually, all of those terms are fundamentally incompatible with this hobby. It's all about fun, and if some person finds this ED floppydrive and thinks "hey, would be fun to get this working on my Atari!" then no other reason is needed
