PCPowerhouse heeft een artikel gepost met info over diverse removable storage gevalletjes, o.a. Zip, Superdisk en Sony HiFD.
Hier wat stuff uit de intro:
It is these problems with the 1.44Mb floppy disk that have created the emergence of the Syquest EZ135, Syquest EZ Flyer 230, Iomega's 100Mb Zip drive, and the Avartar Shark drive. The battle between the EZ135 and Zip drives was the first real attempt at displacing the floppy. Unfortunately for Syquest, while their drive was superior to the Zip in storage capacity and speed, the Zip drive came out first, and had a little more momentum going for it. Both drives suffered with problems, the Iomega Click of Death was discovered, causing Iomega to create the Zip Plus! drive. Meanwhile the EZ135 had numerous minor problems that led Syquest to develop the EZ Flyer 230 drive and discontinue their EZ135 units. The Avartar Shark drive was a late entry into this battle, and it didn't fare well with its higher price tag. Yet each of these solutions, while superior to the venerable floppy drive, suffer from the same problems as past attempts to replace the floppy...cost and compatibility.
