The 1570 is fairly common here in
Australia, wheras the 1571 is slightly more elusive. These were
released with the Commodore 128.
Very reliable drive
- can take a beating and still run. To give you an idea, someone
gave me a 1570 that had been under a house for 10 years - COVERED in
dirt. Worked fine.
According to SWoC,
the 1570 was only released for a relatively short time, as the
production run for the 1571 was taking longer than expected. The
1570 is nothing more than a 1541 power supply & case with 1571
To prove it, I
opened up one of my 1571's - look below!
