8x multi-format DVD burner

FastMac today announced the availability of what it calls the "fastest" internal slot-loading DVD/CD burner for Mac laptops, offering DVD burning that is eight times faster than Apple's original "SuperDrive." FastMac's new is compatible with all PowerBook G3/G4, iBook G4, PowerMac G4 Cube, iMac G3 Slot-Load and iMac G5 models. Designed to replace Apple's original optical drive, the FastMac 8x DVD±RW drive is compatible with Apple's iDVD, iTunes and Disc Burner, as well as Roxio's Toast Titanium and Popcorn applications. It burns DVDs--both +R and -R formats--at 8x speed and rewrites DVDs at 4x speed. It also writes to DVD-RAM discs at 3x speed, CD-Rs at 24x speed, and CD-RWs at 10x speed as well as reads DVDs at 8x and CDs at 24x. The $230 drive features a one-year warranty and buffer under-run protection.
