I also got a ZoomFloppy from Jim Brain, and made a case for it.  I've
got it hooked to my NAS, and am using OpenCBM on Linux, to transfer
images.  It works perfectly, using my 1571.  Definitely worth the very
low price, IMO.

I've also got a 1541 Ultimate-II on order, but that is for a different
purpose, obviously.  Now, if I could only get a new PAL for this dead
