I just bought a PAL C64, it will be waiting for me as my Christmas present back in Spain. I'm planning to bring it here after the holidays.
Regarding storage, eventually I'll get a floppy drive but right now I'm between the SD2IEC or the Ultimate II+. I believe the latter will be the one I choose as it has so many options... cartridges, connection to tape, floppy simulation etc. But I just wanted to ask you what are your thoughts about these two. If someone has the Ultimate II+ perhaps can comment about what is not so good about it (besides de price tag)
The ultimate 2+ is certainly the more versatile of the them, I guess it would be more about what you plan to do with your 64. From what I read, both are great enhancements to the 64. I suppose the SD2IEC might have an advantage in that it can be used on the VIC and TED series of computers as well.
Up and running - VIC 20, C64, C16. Works in progress - Plus/4, C128, Amiga 2000. Looking for - C= Colt/PC compatibles and vintage consumer electronics.
