Creative Technology Ltd. (Nasdaq: CREAF - news), the leading provider of Personal Digital Entertainment (PDE) Solutions, today announced the CD-RW Blaster® 12-10-32, currently shipping to online and retail outlets in North America at an estimated street price (ESP) of US$299.
With a maximum CD-R writing speed of 12X, a top CD-RW writing speed of 10X, and a CD-ROM reading speed up to 32X, the CD-RW Blaster 12-10-32 serves as a comprehensive CD creator for the digital audio enthusiast who wishes to store personalized music compilations. With storage capability for MP3, MIDI and .WAV files, the CD-RW Blaster 12-10-32 frees up valuable hard drive space by doubling as a handy storage solution.
Creative's latest CD-RW features new BURN-Proof(TM) technology, which curbs buffer underrun, or insufficient delivery of data to the drive from the PC. This new technology eliminates the worry of unsuccessful recording sessions caused by a slow CPU, multi-tasking, or other system-related issues.
The CD-RW Blaster 12-10-32 writes complete CD-R media in approximately 8 minutes (based on writing a 650MB disc on 12X CD-R media on a system with a minimum, sustained data transfer rate of 1,800KB/second to the drive). It stores up to 650MB of data or 74 minutes of CD audio on a single CD-R disc.
