BenQ has announced the launch of its latest optical storage product, the CRW4816P CD-rewriter, in the Middle East. The company also announed that it expected continued growth across all of its optical storage products. The vendor claims that the BenQ CRW4816P is currently the world's fastest CD-rewriter with 48X writing, 16X rewriting, and 48X reading speeds.

“Middle East consumers have been quick to realise the enormous benefits of high-speed optical storage – from CD-ROM to DVD-ROM, CD-RW to future DVD-RW and DVD+RW – and these products are very much in demand across the region,” commented Robert Dung, managing director, BenQ Middle East. “But with all technologies, speed will always be a key feature for users, and our newly launched CRW4816P CD-rewriter is the fastest in the world,” added Dung.

The CRW4816P offers internal IDE, and maximum 48X writing, 16X rewriting, and 48X reading speeds. Under optimal conditions, an 80-minute extra-long CD can be written in less than three minutes, making it useful for those who require high-performance writing capabilities. The CD-rewriter also adopts true CAV for speed control. Starting at 22X from the inner-edge and accelerating at a constant velocity to a maximum 48X, the average write speed is just over 37X, making it the fastest CD-rewriter in the world today.
