I'm not personally selling these, just want to give a heads up for anyone interested. Most of you are familiar with the Athana 5.25" DS/DD floppies. I think they were the last company still producing them new.

Coleman's Military Surplus is selling cases of 500 for $150. If you need a bunch of floppies, I think this is the best price you will find anywhere per disk. After shipping and tax I paid $183.

My order was just delivered so I can confirm that they are actually in stock as the website says. I also have a one-time coupon for 10% off, which I will give to the first person to PM me.

I will note that the labels don't stick very well. Probably going to buy some generic address labels and black stickers for write protect.

Nice. Now I can realize my bucket-list dream of writing each and every Eamon adventure to physical media, just because. Without paying $2 per disk. :3

I'm going to have to get a bigger disk box, though............

If the dimensions are for a two pack, then each case would be about the size of a case storing 50 3.5" disks.

I wonder how many they have. Hopefully their e-commerce software is smart enough not to oversell :)
