Quantum Bigfoot CY
The Bigfoot CY family replaced the original Bigfoot drives, not that there was much to notice apart from the increased capacities.
Seek time was down to 12ms, which was creditable for a big 5¼ inch drive but as slow as any drive on the market at that time, and in practice slower still because of the extra latency of a 3600 RPM drive.
