I never had a Jazz drive, but I had two Zips, 100MB external and 100MB internal which were good for their time, then USB sticks and CDs killed them off, bless.
I had a couple of Plextor DVD burners (712A, 716A) which before they broke down, were very good drives with advanced enthusiast features found nowhere else. One could check the quality of the burn using software to graph the read errors (forget now if Plextor software or third party) and weirdly, in some cases, the burn was best at the highest speed, or a little below. Never understood that one.
Oh yes, WAL knows how to make parody videos.
