In 1986, SyQuest announced the SQ555 and its SQ400 associated cartridge, a 44 MB 5ΒΌ-inch removable cartridge hard disk drive, using the industry standard 130 mm disk as its medium.[3] Double capacity versions, the SQ5110 and SQ800 were introduced in 1991. This generation of products became the de facto standard in the Apple Macintosh world to store, transfer and backup large amounts of data such as generated by graphic artists, musicians and engineers.[4]
