Iomega announces Predator external CD-RW drive

"...Iomega today unveiled the new shape of CD-RW: the Iomega Predator external CD-RW drive. Iomega's new Predator CD-RW drive will debut at the Comdex technology trade show this November in Las Vegas and is expected at retail in the U.S. in January 2001. The Predator CD-RW drive combines breakthrough design, interchangeable interfaces, and a comprehensive software bundle to deliver outstanding value to consumers.

Iomega has discarded the shoe-box dimensions of typical CD-RW products and trimmed away the excess bulk and weight. The result: an exciting new low-profile design of sculpted curves and rounded edges. In another departure from the bland styling of competing products, the Predator drive's case is finished in a textured cobalt-blue with silver accents. The drive also replaces the motorized front-loading drive tray of most other external drives with a top-loading design similar to that of portable CD players. The new design is quieter, mechanically simpler and treats CDs more gently than front-loading players, which can pinch an improperly inserted disc.

The Predator CD-RW drive, which has a rated performance of 8X4X32X (8X write-once, 4X rewrite, 32X read), supports popular interfaces by using detachable and interchangeable adapters. The Predator drive will begin shipping in late December bundled with a USB 1.1 adapter offering 4X4X6X performance, and in early 2001 the drive will be bundled with a FireWire adapter offering 8X4X32X performance. With additional options planned for release in 2001, users will be able to easily switch among any of four hot-swappable connection types: USB 1.1, FireWire, PCMCIA, and USB 2.0.

The Iomega Predator external CD-RW drive in USB 1.1 configuration is expected in U.S. stores in January of 2001 for $269.95 (U.S. estimated retail price). The Predator drive with FireWire support will be available in U.S. stores in the first quarter of 2001 for $349.95 (U.S. estimated retail price). To purchase from Iomega directly, visit"
