EZQuest today began shipping its Boa 48x12x48 FireWire CD-RW drive for Mac/PC. The $220 drive can write an entire 74-minute CD-R in 1.5 minutes -- a 20% advantage over 40X writers. The drive writes discs at 12X, or in about six minutes. The unit ships with a 2MB data buffer, software for Mac OS 9/X; and includes a built-in universal 50-watt auto-switching power supply.
