Hard Disks for ZX Spectrum

We need your feedback !!

Having secured Plus-D floppy disk drive interfaces for the Speccy, we have been thinking about hard disks. The problem is finding external hard disk drives which can be used (modern ones are all USB drives whereas we need IDE). The one option is to use a flash card slot, so you can write to a flash card, but there the problem is that they have a limited write cycle (about 100,000 writes).

You can use a standard IDE hard disk, with a PC power supply, but it looks unsightly

We welcome you views on what you would like to see.
