Included with the new Predator CD-RW drive is HotBurn(TM), Iomega's breakthrough CD-RW recording software program for PCs. HotBurn software makes most CD-burning tasks faster and simpler, allowing users of all ability levels to create a CD in just two easy steps. Research conducted by Iomega indicates that CD-RW users prefer HotBurn to other CD burning software programs.
The new Predator USB 2.0 drive is fully backwards compatible with USB 1.1, for operation at the lower USB 1.1 transfer rate of 12 Mbps practically anywhere there is a USB-equipped computer. And, with built-in buffer under-run protection, Iomega's Predator drive lets users confidently burn CDs even when they are using their computer for other tasks.
``Iomega's CD-RW drives have always combined performance, style, and ease of use,'' said Werner Heid, president and CEO, Iomega Corporation. ``The new Predator USB 2.0 drive builds on the revolutionary look of the first-generation Predator, and with USB 2.0 capability added, the new Predator drive delivers its full potential for fast recording. The Predator USB 2.0 CD-RW drive with Iomega HotBurn software is going to make a lot of music lovers very happy.''
Iomega's Predator 24x10x40 USB 2.0 CD-RW drive ($229.95 U.S. estimated retail price before rebates) is available now with Iomega HotBurn(TM) software at retail and in catalog, and will be available later this month online at www.iomega.com .
