High-CapacityDisk Drives for Business and Home

The Market

Every year the demand for hard disk storage doubles. Glance down the software aisle of any computer store and you’ll see why: “software inflation”. Today’s graphical operating systems, such as Windows® 95, use up to 60 megabytes of storage space.CD-ROM–based multimedia applications, educational applications, and games gobble up to 40 megabytes of disk space each. On top of that, many people storee-mailmessages and downloaded images from digital cameras and the Internet.

To satisfy this rapidly growing market, Quantum created the Bigfoot5.25inch disk drive series. By combining advanced recording technologies with the increased data area of5.25-inchdisks, the Bigfoot CY drive delivers the bestdollar-per-megabytevalue in the industry today.

Outstanding Performance for Multimedia and Beyond

Multimedia applications benefit from greater sequential transfer performance. The large-capacitydata tracks of Bigfoot CY disks deliver exceptional sequential performance, making the drive perfect for multimedia.

To enhance performance further, Bigfoot CY is designed with Quantum’s proprietary technologies for minimizing host delays and increasing sequential data performance—multipleAutoRead, multiple AutoWrite, and AutoTransfer capabilities. In addition, we included a FastATA-2interface that delivers localbus AT Programmed Input/Output (PIO) Mode 4 and Multiword DMA Mode 2 data transfers of up to 16.6 megabytes

per second. We also included a 128kilobyte buffer with Quantum’s DisCache adaptive, segmented drive-to-hostcaching technology to enhancehigh-speeddata transfers.

Easy Installation

Installing a Bigfoot CY drive is a snap, whether you’re building a new system or upgrading an existing PC. It’s the same width as a CD-ROMdrive, so it fits conveniently in any standard5.25-inchdrive bay. The Bigfoot CY drive also uses the standard AT interface andcables—andsupports the same master/slave configurations as3.5-inchdisk drives. That’s why no matter whether you’re building a new system or upgrading an existing system, installing a Bigfoot CY drive is simple and straightforward.

Reliability and Versatility

We designed the Bigfoot CY drive using as many field-provencomponents as possible to give consumers years oftrouble-freeoperation. Using advanced ASIC technology, we also implemented automatic,double-burst,on-the-flyerror detection and correction to ensure rocksolid reliability. The Bigfoot CY drive also supports the S.M.A.R.T.(Self-Monitoring,Analysis, and Reporting Technology) Revision 2industry-standarddataprotection firmware. With host computer S.M.A.R.T. support, this feature provides critical disk drive status and overall health information that lets users avoid catastrophic data loss. When you have systems equipped with reliable and versatile Bigfoot CY drives, your customers stay sold onyou—andon Quantum.
