[2:45 PM] The March Of FireWire Continues Apace With New CDRW Drives

EZQuest has announced that they are adding two new Firewire CDRW drives to their lineup. The Boa Firewire 4x4x24 and 6x4x24 CDRW drives mark continued expansion into the growing Firewire market. These drives also offer Mac users blistering speeds for a reasonable cost. According to EZQuest:

The Boa FireWire 4x4x24 CDRW will write to CDR disks at 4x speed, rewrite to CDRW disks at 4x and read at 24x with a maximum transfer rate of 3,600 Kbytes/sec and a 2mb buffer. The Boa FireWire 6x4x24 CDRW will allow the same performance along with a faster CDR write speed of 6X.

Boa Firewire 4x4x24 and 6x4x24 drives are compatible with the imac DV line, blue and white G3s as well as G4 Macintosh computers, according to Ebrahim Zmehrir, president of EZQuest. "These new Firewire drives are a perfect compliment to the outstanding line of new Macintosh systems" Zmehrir says.

The Boa Firewire 4x4x24 is available for US$369, while the 6x4x24 version is available for US$409. You can find more information at the EZQuest web site.
