New CD-RW burners from Iomega
With the new Predator series, Iomega is bringing external CD-RWs onto the market that have different connections.
The new burners are optionally addressed via the following interfaces:
- USB 1.1
- USB 2.0
The devices reach the maximum speed on the Firewire and USB 2.0 interface, namely 8x/4x/32x, whereby the performance according to the interface speeds with USB 1.1 and PCMCIA is only 4x/4x/6x. To make the purchase a little more palatable, Iomega bundles the burners with various software for Windows and Mac. The USB versions of the burner can now be ordered from Iomega, the Firewire and PCMCIA versions should be available towards the end of the month. Unfortunately, prices have not yet been determined.
