A better one: the Insite 21Mbyte SCSI floptical.
It could read/write all normal 3.5" floppy disks too.
(The 21Mb disks differed mainly by a laser etched alignment groove.)

I expect the ZIP drive to vanish just as this highly praised drive did.
The JAZ drive is simply laughable. Until the media falls to about $5
neither stands much of a chance, especially with PD on the way.

Anyways, lets ignore the deception of the vendors and use the
logical powers of 2 instead of powers of 10.
