LaCie also offers the CDRW
product with a 16x recording speed - the CDRW161040 model, priced at GBP139+VAT.
Initially, different OPU manufacturers led the market in DVD and CDRW
. For this reason, the number of suppliers coming to market early with combo OPUs is a smaller subset of current CD-RW and DVD OPU makers.
LaCie has introduced what it claims to be the market's fastest CDRW
The company also announced it has developed a drive that records CDRW
True, they are faster than the CDRW
drives, but for distribution and portability the Jaz cartridges are quite limited.

drives (C)1994-2000 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD http://www.m2.com
According to the company, the CD TurboWriter RW drive is the industry's first CDRW
solution to record a full 650-MB CD in less than 12 minutes.
Apart from the 1-GB capacity, it has all the trimmings of the ORB drive, including a much better access time than the Zip drive or the HP CD-ReWritable, and the same price ($199) as Iomega's Zip Plus-less than half that of the typical CDRW
The program works with ordinary CDR and CDRW
drives that support Disc-At-Once (DAO), and a Pentium II or newer computer is recommended.
