FireWire CD-RW Drives

Do you have a need for speed? Macworld Lab evaluated seven new FireWire CD-RW drives that should keep even the greediest speed demon happy . . . for a while, anyway. You can use any of these drives for backup and storage, as you would a standard CD-R drive, but they can also rewrite to your media. And since all the drives we tested take advantage of the IEEE 1394 interface, better known as FireWire, they're easier to set up than SCSI drives and speedier than their USB counterparts.
