In a recent review Macworld gave MacDrive 98 3.0, 4 1/2 mice out of a possible 5 - "...we prefer MacDrive. It has a few niceties that MacOpener does not, allowing you to map file-name extensions more easily and providing the handy iconic reminder when you're working with Mac media. Most people probably won't use these extra features, but it's nice to have the added capabilities if you need them."
