The HX-F101 is a 3.5" floppy disk drive with interface, released by Toshiba. The interface is fixed to the drive unit. A second drive can be attached to the primary unit, but it is unclear if such a second drive option was every actually made available by Toshiba.

The interface includes a ROM with version 1 of the Disk BASIC instructions.

Four variations are known to exist, which are listed below. The table may not be completely correct or complete. Note that the drive always displays HX-F101 in front, the complete product name appears only on the box and the label.
