Floppies seemed to me to become very unreliable. I assume this was due
to downward pressure on the manufacturing cost. I reckon the best ones,
if you still have any, were the ones given away as cover disks on
computer magazines.

That was some time ago though.

In any case, the last motherboard I bought has no floppy interface. So I
can't use my 5.25 inch drives :-( The only way to use floppies now
AFAICT is to either have a USB drive or an LS-120 drive. Until the PATA
socket vanishes too.....
