Actima 52x CD-ROM drive with speed control

Actima Technology, a Taiwanese electronics manufacturer, has introduced its 52x CD-ROM drive, the A52T. With the A52T, the read speed of the drive can be reduced from 52x in steps to 8x.

This is made possible with the 'Speed ​​Adjustment Technology' (SAT), which is supposed to extend the service life of the drive considerably. The speed control must be done via a button on the panel of the device. Not exactly user-friendly if the computer is not in the immediate vicinity of the user. Under Windows 9x/ME/2000, the device should be automatically recognized via Plug & Play. The ATAPI/E IDE drive delivers a maximum transfer rate of 7,800 KByte/s. When and whether it will be launched in Germany has not yet been determined.
