QPS Releases 40x CD Burners

FireWire model available for Mac By Dave Nagel
QPS says it has released three new models in its line of Que! 40x CD-RW drives, although the drives were not available at the company's Web site at press time. The models all use the same mechanism but are available in FireWire, USB 2.0 and internal ATAPI versions.

The new Que! CD Burners offer write speeds of 40x, rewrite speeds of 12x and read speeds of 48x. According to QPS, the drives can burn a 700 MB disc (80 minutes) in approximately 3.3 minutes. Que! CD Burners feature BURNProof or a comparable buffer technology designed to eliminate buffer underrun errors in fast write modes. The drives include a 4 B buffer.

All of the drives offer a maximum data transfer rate of 6 MB per second and an access time of 130 ms. Only the FireWire model includes authoring software for the Macintosh (Charismac Discribe for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X). The other models include Nero for Windows. The FireWire model runs $299.99. The USB 2.0 and internal models run $249.99 and $179.99, respectively. For more information, visit
