Pioneer's new DRM-624X

Six-Disc CD-ROM Changer Suits Archiving and More Pioneer's new DRM-624X six disc CD-ROM changer suits many educational applications, including data archival, imaging management, library reference and multimedia. The 4.4X drive features a data transfer rate of 676KB/sec, 150ms average access time and an average seek time of 110ms. Pioneer's patented magazine provides quick access to multiple CD-ROMs without manual disc switching or special command routines. Discs are placed in the magazine trays upside-down to prevent dust from obscuring the drive's optical head. The magazine can also be locked for enhanced media security. Customer support includes in-warranty technical assistance through the firm's toll-free telephone hotline as well as fax support and a comprehensive company BBS system. Pioneer New Media Technologies, Inc., Long Beach, CA, (800) 444-OPTI.
