Hah, this is great. Do you own one, then?

I wonder how many were made?

No I don't own one and I don't know how many were made.
Would be interesting to try it though and know how many were made.

It would. I'm inclined to make it my goal to collect as many obscure playstation peripherals as possible. o.O.

Proud owner of one, and one of the Prototype ones at that. :)

There were two models; one that used normal floppies and one that HD discs. I did the review of the HD one here.

It essentially acted as a early ass DexDrive.
