Summary
  • Disk drive makers face many issues as they stake out an early position in the emerging market for 5.25-inch Winchester disk drives with over-300Mbyte capacities. Sources say the demand for high-capacity storage systems, traditionally from technical workstation vendors, now includes microcomputer and mid-range system makers. Many computer makers are evaluating over 300Mbyte drives, but few deals have been announced. The market is predicted to grow nearly 10-fold over a two-year period and be worth $250 million in 1988. Technological and market issues for disk drive manufacturers include: high-capacity 5.25-inch drives will provide a significant revenue boost, but also will take sales away from older Winchester lines; need to build up volume production and establish a stable base of customers; shortage of thin-film heads; high error rates; and interfacing problems.
