Product Watch: Store 32 MB On A Floppy! The New SuperDisk From QPS.
Imation has discontinued their SuperDisk line, but QPS has taken up the torch, announcing the successor to the LS-120. The LS-240, as the name implies, allows you to store 240 MB on a SuperDisk. The LS-240 is backwards compatible with the original (120 MB) SuperDisk drive and supports floppies as well. The LS-240 uses "FD-32MB" technology which allows traditional floppies to be reformatted to support 32 MBper disk! If you have a collection of floppies mothballed somewhere, the LS-240 can give them new purpose.
"With the new FD-32MB technology, users get twice the disk-storage capacity of an LS-120 SuperDisk, and they get about 22 times the capacity of a conventional floppy-disk. The Que! LS-240 Drive is a great solution for storing sound, picture and presentation data. We think it will be well received, particularly in the education market where there is heavy usage of the LS-120," said Pierre Abboud, vice president of QPS."

The LS-240 will also be offered as an option in QPS's FireWire D2 Dual Drive. The D2 is an external hard drive with a built in removable media drive as well. Options for the removable media drive include the LS-120, LS-240 or a CD-RW drive.
