As far as I can tell from occasional postings on various forums, the
Zoomfloppy/1571 combination seems to suffer from reliability problems
and the usual advice given is to use a very short, high quality
cable. Therefore it appears that Commodore did not "drop the ball again"
but instead chose reliability over speed, which most sane companies
would do in this situation to reduce support costs and to avoid the
impression that their products are unreliable.
