Iomega Jaz (1996 – 2002)

Introduced by Iomega in 1996, the Jaz disk was a removable hard-disk storage system, that initially had a capacity of 1 GB (a 2 GB version was released in 1998). They were formatted for PC or MAC use.

It was never as popular as the smaller Zip drive also produced by Iomega, and this could have been due to the increasing use of CD-R and CD-RW.

Jaz drives were discontinued in 2002.
