Only as far as type and utility goes. A modern 3.5" drive is just as
useful as an old Sony 0AD SS 3.5" drive, even if it only spins at 300
RPM. So I dumped my old Sony drives. But, for example, I have both
the 2.88 and 6.4MB 5.25" Drivetec drives, even if there's nowhere to
get formatted media for them, because they're the only thing that
will read those diskettes.
