Product Description

Hardcard offspring by Howard Falk

About a year and a half ago the Hardcard appeared on the personal computer marketplace and quickly became a very popular item. Hardcard is a 10 million byte hard disk that plugs into one of the expansion slots (normally used to hold adapters for printers and displays) at the back of the IBM Personal Computer. This product sold so well that it stimulated development of many similar disks-on-a-card. In fact, there are now so many different card-mounted units available that they constitute a new category of hard disks for personal computers.

From the start, the appeal of these units has been that they are, compared to standard hard disks, simple to install. In addition, they appeal to users who hate the idea of putting a floppy disk drive on the shelf after removing it to make room for a hard disk. With a disk-on-a-card, there is no need to remove any floppy drive since this disk, with its controller, fits neatly inside the IBM system unit.
