I sold my Wii a while ago as I found that it would be better for me to emulate it. However, I just had the opportunity to use one this weekend (I really haven't had the chance recently) and one thing struck me as incredible- how easy it was to insert discs.
I've used a wide range of slot loading disc drives- cross Apple desktops and laptops and a handful of PC ones too, but nothing beat that Wii's drive- I only had to put in the disc nearly halfway until it detected it and pulled in the rest. For any computer drive I'd have to shove the disc almost the whole way in until it grabs it.
The PS3 also seems to have this functionality. To put it simply, the Wii's (PS3's) drive was elegant compared to any computer drive.
Is there a specific reason for this? I'd love to be able to have that mechanism in my computer but surely that isn't possible.
Just a stupid question on my part, but it's bugging me. If you've got a slot loading drive and a Wii, try it out for yourself.
