Smart and Friendly Unveils World's First 12x CD-RW Solution


"..Smart and Friendly announced the world's first 12x CD-Recorder with CD-RW ReWritability today with the unveiling of the new CD Rocket Mach 12.

With unprecedented 12x Write, 4x ReWrite and 32x Playback speeds, an unparalleled software suite including eight of today's hottest-selling software applications, and an Estimated Street Price (ESP) of $399 (internal model, Part No. SAF1200).
The CD Rocket Mach 12 features Adaptec's Easy CD Creator 4 Deluxe, allowing users to easily create audio and backup CDs, access music on the Internet, fine tune music tracks, enhance photos and videos like a pro, as well as create personalized CD labels.
An all-in-one solution for CD-Recording, this new software enables corporate, government and power users to create content with professional results. Combined with the performance of the CD Rocket Mach 12, users can create a "

CDR-Info posted info for 12x CDR/W & Media sometime ago.

If you remember S&F had also made the 1st 8x CDR/W drive and then several other manufactures (ex. Plextor and Imation..) since into past they all shared 8/2/20 machine..(Question..who is now making that new 12/4/32 machine ?..I could guess Sanyo but again I am not sure..)

Also as far I remember 8x CDRs from S&F had problems with 8x certified media. They could only wrote it.. But when Plextor 8x CDRs came they could wrote all media into 8x speed without any problems..

So we must wait until the Rocket Mach 12 comes and be serious tested.. Lets hope this time it will be better than the 8x model..

What about 12x certified media ?.. As CDR-Info already posted 12x media maybe already be out (not 100% sure..) We had heard that Mitsui has released it.. But then again nothing is mentioned into their website.. I guess we still have to wait for it also..

Suddenly my 4416s CDR/W seems kind old now..Don't you agree ?
