New CD-R drive from Sony

Come May 1 and Sony will have added a new CD-R drive to its line-up -- the $849 CRX120, which includes CD-RW capabilities.

The CRX120 writes at 4X, and reads CD-ROMs at 24X. According to Sony, a full 74 minutes of audio or 650MB of data can be written to CD in less than 19 minutes. The company also claims that CDs can be written, erased and rewritten up to 1000 times "at the full 4X performance level".

The drive features a Tray Load and fits into a standard 5.25in half-height slot, allowing users to replace a CD-ROM drive with the CRX120. The drive has also been designed to connect to an ATAPI IDE interface, an interface card which is commonly already built into PCs, saving users the cost of purchasing an additional interface card, says Sony.

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.
