MEDIC Winchester Hard Disk

The MEDIC Winchester Hard Disk was the first hard disk that was advertised for the QL. first appearing in the October 1985 issue of QL World (although CST Winchesters hard disk drive was reviewed in the same issue).

The Medic hard disk drive provided a 5MB formatted hard disk and was advertised at £299.95 including interface (although I believe it still needed the Medic Interface to connect to the QL). This marked a significant saving on the CST Winchesters.

Interestingly, this interface promised sub-directories, which could each be configured to emulate a series of floppy disk drives.

Again, this product was probably never shipped.
