Doesn't it require you to format disk separately? In that case it loses when writing to unformatted disk. It also lacks the coolness factor :)

Coolness factor with 64 seconds write with C64 overweights 55 second write with PC, especially as I don't need to move disk from PC to 1581 afterwards. As everyone knows, d81 images just magically appear into memory card so there is no need to move card from PC to MMC64 ;)

I won't bother with d81 reader, for those rare situations when you need it you can use OmniFlop or 1581disk+fdrawcmd.sys.
