Addonics Announces 4X Pocket CD-RW Drive With PC Card and USB Interface
FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 15, 1999--Addonics Technologies today announced a compact CD-Record/CD-Write (CD-RW) drive with PC Card and USB interface.

Called the Pocket CDRW, the PCMCIA drive enables notebook PCs or USB-equipped desktop PCs or iMacs to record and playback digital quality sound and video, or to rewrite and backup data onto CD-R or CD-RW media.

Available immediately, Addonics' 4 x 4 x 20 Pocket CDRW drive will be priced at $499 with either PCMCIA or USB interface cable. Price includes the Adaptec's Easy CD Creator and Deluxe CD software, which has a retail value of $89. The USB version for the iMac will be priced at $529 and is bundled with Adaptec's Toast CD software.

The drive, which measures 6.4" x 5.4" x .8" and weighs around 14 OZ, is one of the smallest CDRW drives available in the market. The drive works with CD-R and CD-RW media discs. Each disc can hold about 74 minutes of audio or about 650MB of data. The Pocket CDRW is suited for many personal and business uses such as: archiving data; software distribution; recording or playing personalized CD-audio discs or running CD-ROM applications. By writing data in the UDF (Universal Disk Format), the CD-R or CD-RW media can be read by other CD ROM drives. With this data compatibility, the CD-RW becomes a viable replacement for floppy drives and a very attractive large capacity removable storage alternative.

"Until now notebook PC users could not take advantage of the CD-RW technology. Our Pocket CD-RW enables the portable user to install the CD-RW drive via the PCMCIA slot of their notebook PC. The drive can also be shared with a desktop PC or Apple iMAC with an optional USB cable. The CD-RW drive is a very versatile device. With the low cost and large capacity media that is available, users will use the CD-RW drive to replace CD-ROM, floppy drive or other removable drives," said Bill Kwong, President of Addonics.

System requirements are Windows 95/98, a 90MHz or greater CPU with PC Card Type I or Type II slot, and a minimum 16MB RAM. The drive will be available through major computer superstores, catalog companies, internet resellers, VARs and distributors, including Micro Center, CDW, PC Connection, Cyberian Outpost, CMO, Tech Data and D&H.

Addonics is a member of the multi-billion-dollar ACER Group. Addonics designs, manufactures, and markets a broad line of mobile storage products that connect to many PC platforms including Desktop, Notebook, Win CE, iMAC and Apple Power Book, through the PCMCIA and USB interfaces. The company also has a broad line of communications products and multimedia audio and graphics solutions.

Addonics is headquartered at 48434 Milmont Drive, Fremont, CA 94538.
