today announced a price reduction on its Irwin AccuTrak product line.

"Irwin AccuTrak products continue to provide the highest levels of performance, support and value in the DC2000 market, said Chris Tipton, vice president and general manager of the Irwin Distribution Division of Maynard. "These new low prices are the result of a modest price reduction taken by Maynard today and a significant reduction announced in September 1991, and reflect Maynard's commitment to maintain Irwin AccuTrak products' lead in the DC2000 market." Irwin AccuTrak drives, with an installed base of over 1.5 million drives, are the industry leaders in the DC2000 market. The Irwin AccuTrak product is available in both internal and external configurations for use with IBM-compatible PC and PS/2 products, and can interchange data with mini-cartridge tape drives sold by IBM, Compaq, NCR, HP, NEC, Data General, Zenith and others.
