Iomega Corp. has announced two new DVD recorders, the
Super DVD QuikTouch Video Burner
Super DVD Writer, as well as the new Network Hard Drive, which features
($379.95) capacities, 10/100 Ethernet connectivity and Iomega Automatic Backup software for up to four clients. It plugs into any router, switch or hub and can be configured with a Web browser. Mac OS X v10.2.7 is required, and Iomega is currently offering a $30 mail-in rebate for both drives. It expires Jan. 1, 2005.
The company will debut its new Super DVD recorders next week. Users can plug a video source directly into the QuikTouch Video Burner ($299.95), or use files already on their Mac, and burn video directly to a DVD or CD. The Super DVD Writer ($199.95) lacks the ability to accept a direct video source. Both drives feature USB 2.0 connectivity and compatibility with DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R and CD-RW discs. They also feature the ability to burn double-layer DVD+R discs, but not on the Mac, where Mac OS X v10.2.7 and a G4 processor are required. Iomega is also offering a $30 mail-in rebate that expires on Jan. 1, 2005 for both DVD recorders.
