TEAC Ships the First 8x24 CD-Recordable Drives; New Lower Price Points Announced for Current 6X24 Models
MONTEBELLO, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- TEAC, a world leader in the manufacture of CD-ROM, CD-Recordable and removable storage technology, today announces it is shipping the company's new 8X24 CD-Recordable Drive (CD-R). The 8X24 SCSI-2 device establishes a new level of performance and reliability as the fastest CD-Recorder on the market, ready for a new era of data-rich opportunities and applications.

TEAC's latest 8X24 CD-R records at 1,200KBps (8X), giving the professional user the fastest performance for the most demanding applications. The level of speed, complimented by the recorder's SCSI-2 interface, allows the user to create up to 650MB of data and the equivalent of 74 minutes of audio. In addition, the drive transfers audio from one disc to another at an audio extraction rate of 12X. The 8X24 mirrors today's high performance CD-ROM drives by delivering 150ms average access time and reading data at 3.6MBps (24X).

"TEAC is excited to offer this addition to our CD-R family, which is the fastest and most affordable of its kind," stated Les Luzar, division manager, TEAC's Data Storage Products Division. "We strive to give everyone, from the professional to the beginner, the ability to burn custom data and audio CDs with the latest CD-R technology."

The new 8X24 is available as either an internal plug and play model or an external unit that allows simple connection and portability from one computer to the other. Both models come in a complete kit, including everything needed to easily install and run the drive, including an Adaptec bus master PCI SCSI host adapter bundled with a collection of Adaptec® software. The bundle consisting of Adaptec Direct CD(TM), Adaptec Easy CD Creator(TM), Adaptec CD Copier Deluxe(TM) and MGI Photo Suite software for Windows 95/98 and Windows NT gives the user a familiar and easy way to drag and drop data, create custom CDs and make backup copies.

"With products like the 8X24, TEAC is providing for the advent of MP3 and other emerging technologies which benefit from high speed CD recording devices."
