      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      With the modern trend of large capacity hard drives, DVD drives and larger software programs, the humble floppy disc at 1.44 Mb is becoming effectively smaller. Despite this, it is still an essential piece of hardware on any computer. This is were the Imation Super Disk serves it's purpose. With a capacity of 120 Mb it is capable of holding many complete programs or large image files, while also being able to read and write to a 1.44 Mb floppy. Without this piece of hardware I would have often found it necessary to use a recordable CD for temporary storage. Not only does this constitute waste as I would have later thrown it away, but the time involved would be pointless. If you are thinking of replacing your floppy drive, then I recommend replacing it with the LS120.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Imation's Superdisk was designed to directly compete with the Iomega Zip drive. Both carry comparable ~120MB per disk capacities. The Superdisk has one very large advantage: it can also read normal high density disks (at very high speeds). It also has one very large disadvantage: no one uses them. Consequently, Superdisks have become more of a personal backup medium than a universal exchange medium. These days, it is nearly possible to give a Zip disk to someone and assume that they will have a drive. You cannot say the same thing for Superdisks. Nevertheless, Superdisks have their niche. For example, the speed of Superdisks is far greater than traditional floppies. If you have archived substantial numbers of high density disks (as I have), then it is definitely worth it to thumb your nose at both traditional disk drives and the zip drive and just go with the Superdisk. After all, how many times do we really send a colleague a disk as opposed to a hard copy or an electronic message? Today, we need a medium that can hold large amounts of information to fulfill our everyday internet needs. Imation's Superdisk fits these requirements quite nicely!
