The LS120 are very reliable. They are better the the normal zip drives and operator around about the same speed.

They operate at 4 to 5 times the speed of a 1.44MB 3.5" floppy.

I need to find out users experience with the drive, specifically
whether the media can store information reliably. Even after a
long period of time (effect of weather, temperature, etc.).

Although I let my cat out at night, the computer isn't allowed out;
it has to stay inside the house,   :-)
where the weather and temperature don't seem vary as much as the cat experiences.
Just keep your computer away from the steam produced
by the automatic dishwasher, and you should be OK,
as long as you water the plants, and not the computer.
