HP, Iomega to release new CD-RWs

Hewlett-Packard today announced it will release two new CD-ReWritable drives in October, a new USB model, offering "ease of use", and a new SCSI model for users seeking high-speed performance.

The HP CD-Writer Plus 8210e, expected to hit the streets at a price of $799, features Plug and Play ease of use through a USB connection, and writes data at up to 4x, and reads data at up to 6x. Being an external drive with USB, Hewlett-Packard says the new drive will appeal to users seeking to easily move a CD-RW drive between PCs.

The new internal SCSI drive, the HP CD-Writer Plus 9200i, sits at the top of Hewlett-Packard's now nine-model-strong CD-RW range. Priced at $999, the 9200i offers writing speeds of up to 8x, and reading speeds of up to 32x.

Iomega last week announced that later this year will see the release its first CD-RW drive, the ZipCD ($499).

The ZipCD, an internal E-IDE drive, will be the first optical storage product from Iomega, and will write data at up to 4x, and read data at up to 24x, says the company.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
