QPS LAUNCHES QUE!FIRE CD-RW DRIVE.

QPS Inc. (www.qps-inc.com) has added a new Que!Fire CD-RW drive to its line of FireWire products.

The external drive for PCs and Mac computers is actually three drives in one -- offering CD-Recording at 12x speed, CD-Rewriting at 10x speed and 32x maximum read speed. Que! is the fastest FireWire CD-RW available. It incorporates the new Burn-Proof technology, eliminating buffer underrun errors in fast-write modes. Multi-tasking on a PC, such as sending E-mail or Web-surfing while burning CDs, is also a key feature. The drive is currently shipping and is priced at $449 MSRP.

"The new Que! drive can serve as a full-time replacement for existing CD-ROM or CD-R drives. Its burn-proof feature eliminates errors that result in wasted `coasters'," said Pierre Abboud, vice president of QPS.

The drive is ideal for desktop publishing and data archiving, and it is an excellent addition for MIDI and recording studios. Complete and ready to install, the Que! Fire drive comes with CD mastering software including Easy-CD Creator, Direct CD for Windows, UDF Reader, and Toast for Mac. CD-Recordable/Rewritable media, a protective carrying bag and all necessary accessories are also included.

System requirements for Mac computers include: Mac OS 9 or higher, an Apple CPU with built-in or add-on FireWire port, Apple FireWire 233 MHz or higher, 32 MB RAM, a CD-ROM drive for software loading, and 100 MB free hard-drive disk space. PCs require a Pentium 233 MHz or higher processor, Windows 98 SE, a built-in or add-on IEE 1394 FireWire port, 32 MB RAM, a CD-ROM drive for software loading, and 100 MB free hard-drive disk space.

QPS products are available through retail stores, catalogs, e-tailers and other retailers of computer products. Resellers include Fry's, Micro Center, Micro Warehouse, Connection, Zones, Creative Computers, Insight, Outpost.com, Buy.com, Egghead.com, and others.
