LS-120 SuperDisk

The LS-120 SuperDisk is a high-speed, high-capacity alternative to the 90 mm (3.5 in), 1.44 MB floppy disk. The Superdisk hardware was introduced by 3M's storage products group (later known as Imation) in 1997. It is one of the last examples of floptical technology, where lasers are used to guide a magnetic head which is much smaller than those used in traditional floppy disk drives.

The LS-120 was produced in SCSI, parallel, ATAPI, and USB variants. It can read and write standard 1.44MB disks.

Date : 1997
