Mitac, AE, Meiji
These disk drives are half the height of the Disk II drives and 2/3 the height of the Unidisk or Apple 5.25 Drive. Manufactured by third party vendors for use on the Apple II series of computers.
All are clean and have all their feet. They have been tested to Format, Read and Write. Speed has been checked and adjusted if necessary. All have the standard DB-19 connector for the Apple I/O or 5.25 Drive interface cards.
None of these drives have a pass through so cannot be daisy chained other than perhaps as the last drive in the chain. Please do your own research. There may be an interface card for the AE (Applied Engineering) drives that will let you use two of them from the same card, I am keeping my eyes open for it.
