Mitsumi expands CD-R line

Mitsumi Electronics introduced the CR-4801TE CD-R drive, an optical storage device designed for consumers and high-end PC users running Windows95 and Windows98. The drive conforms to enhanced IDE for easier integration.

Created especially for writing and storing large data blocks, the CR-4801TE is an erasable-format drive so users can back up and secure files in one step. The drive maintains a data transfer rate of 600KBps for recording and 1,200KBps for playback, with an average access time of less than 200ms and a capacity of up to 650MB.

The drive is expected to begin shipping next month, with a suggested retail price of $349. www.mitsumi.com.
