Kenwood's 72X True X CD-ROM Drive No "specsmanship" just performance!       Once in a blue moon, we get a product in here at Hot Hardware that absolutely knocks our socks off. It doesn't happen very often and we test a lot of product every month. This is one of those times.

Today's 48X and 52X drives are hardly faster than there 32X siblings from days gone by. DVD ROMs and Re-Writable Drives are still making... Read more...

Western Digital's 18Gig Ulta ATA66 Expert WD-AC418000 EIDE Drive technology took another leap forward this year with the advent of the Ultra ATA66 standard. Hot Hardware took a close look at a 5400 RPM ATA66 drive a few months back. This technology was fairly new then and it is still early on for the ATA66 standard.
