Hardware Zone checks out 2 40x12x40 CD-RW drives from Iomega... Yes, they have
2 of them! Take a look at what they think here.
The new 40x12x40 drives from Iomega are certainly one of the fastest drives
around. At the rate CDRW drive speeds are going, it would seem that we'll hit
the 48x maximum write speed in no time. For those who backup frequently, CDR
offers the cheapest form of storage. However, if you need to wait long to burn
a single disc, it doesn't justify your time to use CDR as a backup solution.
But now, we have 40x drives that lets you burn 650MB of data in slightly more
than 3.5 minutes and these products would form a quick and cheap backup solution.
