Jaz disk

An earlier removable hard disk drive from Iomega. Introduced in late 1995, Iomega startled the industry with its breakthrough price of USD $99 for a 1GB removable disk cartridge. Jaz was fairly popular in its niche, and 2GB drives were introduced in 1997. In 2003, Iomega stopped production of new drives, which were superseded by the REV drive. See REV disk and magnetic disk.
