EZQuest, a company that develops and manufactures storage devices, is shipping its new Mac compatible Boa 24x10x40 FireWire CD-RW with Burn Proof protection.
The Boa FireWire 24x10x40 CD-RW will write to CD-R disks at 24x speed, rewrite to CD-RW disks at 10x, and read at 40x with a 2MB buffer. The Boa will write to blank 74-minute CD-R media in around three minutes, according to Ebrahim Zmehrir, president and CEO of EZQuest.
The Boa ships in a Pro-Mar enclosure for optimal performance, he added. It has a molded graphite plastic casing somewhat reminiscent of a Power Mac G4. The manufacturers suggested retail price is US$369. The drive comes with Roxio Toast 5.0, EZ Start-up kit, one blank CD-R, one blank CD-RW, and one FireWire cable.
