Actually, Syquest drives have been around for a long time. They come in
various flavors, from 44MB to 250MB. You may be thinking of the new EZ
drives, also make by Syquest.

Every service bureau and printer I deal with has Syquest drives. None have
either ZIP or EZ drives. Very few are considering buying the new drives
until the devices have been on the market for a year or more and their
reliability is proven. I strongly suggest that John talk with his printers
before buying -anything-, then get whatever format most of his vendors
