SyQuest SyJet (1996 – 1998)

SyJet (SQ1500) was a removable rigid disk format aimed at home users, and introduced by SyQuest in 1996.

It had a capacity of 1.5 GB, and competed with the Iomega Jaz.

The SyJet was a successor to SyQuest’s 3.5-inch rigid disk formats, but was not compatible with them or with SparQ drives.

Warranty and image issues caused by SparQ and SyJet disks were a major factor in SyQuest’s bankrupcy in 1998.
