don't you think it would be good to wait another few weeks until Syquest
releases its system, and then select one of the two 'Gig +' cartridges:
- Iomega 'JAZ' (1 Gb, 15ms seek time)
- Syquest 'SYJET' (1.3 Gb,11ms s.t.).
It would be a blessing if some of the many engineers of our list could
test and recommend the cartridge that would best meet our
This single cartridge would on one hand complement the 3.5" 1.4 Mb floppy
for heavy (image carrying) transfer databases,
and on the other provide a really TRANSPORTABLE audio disc that could
circulate through all the post-prod stages (telecine sync, editing,
final mixing), and between the many equipment manufacturers.
