The increased demand for fast and reliable devices in the Middle East for the storage of electronic information has had vendors scrambling to provide the best they can produce. Benq Middle East is the most recent to unveil a CD-RW, which it claims is the world’s fastest — 40x12x48x. Last month saw the release of LG’s 32-speed CD-RW drive.

“This CD-RW, the Benq 4012P, is the world’s fastest, with users in the Middle East benefiting from 40-speed writing, 12-speed rewriting, and 48-speed reading, regardless of how they choose to use the technology,” said Robert Dung, regional managing director, Benq Middle East.

“These unprecedented writing, rewriting, and reading speeds mean that business and consumer users in the region will be able to increase their productivity levels, as well as enjoy how Benq’s advanced technology is making their lives easier and more manageable,” added Dung.

The new external CD-RWs are focused on mobile CD-RW functionality. In addition to the Mini-RW 8824, a compact, trendy device with multiple interface options, Benq will also be introducing two other external CD-RWs, the 2010EF with Firewire (IEEE1394) interface and 2410EU with USB2.0 interface, both of which are compatible with desktop and notebook computers. For internal desktop CD-RWs, Benq’s offerings include two 32X high-speed CD-RWs 3210A and 3210P, as well as current market mainstreams 24X 2410A.

The entire series of Benq CD-RWs are said to have integrated seamless-link technology to protect against buffer-under-run errors due to insufficient buffer memory. Protection against problems that commonly occur when burning CDs has also been enhanced in the firmware design, making CD burning easier with higher success rates.
