Imation Introduces New CD-RW 8x2x20 Super Recorder

New Offering Is One of the Fastest CD-RW Drives Available

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 21, 1999-- Imation Corp. today announced the Imation CD-RW Super Recorder 8x2x20, one of the fastest CD-RW desktop recorder bundles available. The drive records at 8X speed, allowing users to burn a disc in as fast as nine minutes. Plus, it provides the added flexibility to work with CD-R or CD-RW discs.

The drive is the newest addition to Imation's Super Recorder product family introduced in April, which also includes the Imation CD-R Super Recorder 8x20 and the Imation CD-RW Super Recorder 4x4x20.

"Imation has a solid history in the optical media business. Our background has positioned us well to offer new and faster CD packages that meet the needs of corporate, small business and advanced home users," said Steve Ladwig, president, Imation Data Storage and Information Management. "The CD-RW Super Recorder 8x2x20 is perfect for high-end applications such as graphic design, audio and multimedia recording and software development."

The new drive utilizes a high performance, plug-and-play Adaptec AHA-2930C SCSI card for quick and easy installation and has a 4MB buffer, which prevents buffer underrun, even at 8X recording speed.

The drive's rewrite capability and its support of packet writing -- which allows users to write files at a time, instead of tracks at a time to CD-R -- make it function like a hard drive, with drag and drop simplicity.

Priced at $549 for the internal version and $649 for an external version (MSRP - actual pricing may vary), the Imation CD-RW Super Recorder 8x2x20 supports all platforms. The internal version will be available in July, and the external version in August. Both include a full suite of high-performance recording, backup and archiving software. The packages also include one blank Imation 8X Certified CD-R disc and one CD-RW disc, and will be sold through authorized Imation distributors.

Imation recommends its 8X Certified discs for the best performance on the new 8X speed recorders. Imation also offers high quality 1X-4X CD-R, CD-RW and CD-DA discs. About Imation Corp.
