Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Sony CRX1600LEK CDRW drive - Sony CRX1600LEK CDRW drive
Wed, April 10 2002 | 1:25PM | PermaLink Feedback?
'Tis the season to be jolly, 'tis the season to buy far too much hardware. So here we go again. This time with a new toy, a Sony CRX1600LEK 12x8x32x CD burner. Well you may say, 12x burners came out ages ago, so what’s so special about this one. Well, it does come in this funky little grey caddy, and uses some weird thing called i.Link. What you say. I can’t hear that from the back, oh... what’s i.Link. Well let’s see, sometime about mid-1999 a certain company called Apple decided to patent what was then known as Standard IEEE1394 and rename it Firewire. With that out of the way they settled back on their laurels knowing they had the most kickarse named external interface around, and to tell you the truth, its pretty kickarse. Subsequently Sony decided that it needed to use something which sounded cooler than IEEE1394, a retail mouthful for sure, and patented i.Link as the same technology. So basically same thing different name.
