The Indus GT is a floppy disk drive that was made by Indus Systems of California, USA during the early 1980s for Apple II and Atari 8-bit family and later for the Commodore platforms of the day. [1] It came in a black casing with a smoke plexiglas cover over the drive mechanism. Behind the cover is an 8-segment LED track and sector display.[2] It was considered as a high-quality unit, regarded by many as the best floppy drive available for 8-bit Ataris. [3] It was advertised as being over 400% as fast as the Commodore 1541 and has an internal "ROM drive" with DOS utility software, [4] but suffers, as do many third-party Commodore-1541-imitation drives, from being less than 100% 1541-compatible.
