IMG Sponsor Other World Computing (OWC) today announced a full line of CD-R/RW+DVD(R/RW SuperDrive upgrades for most Apple PowerMac G3s, G4s and G5s, the Apple G4 Cube and select Apple PowerBook computers.

Internal 8x-speed SuperDrives for most PowerMac models start at just $99, with many special software and media bundle options available to choose from. Internal 2x- and 4x-speed SuperDrive upgrades for PowerBook G4 15-inch "Titanium" 400MHz-1GHz models are available from $179.95, and internal 2x- and 4x-speed SuperDrive upgrades for the PowerMac G4 Cube start at $329.95.

"With our full line of internal SuperDrive upgrade kits, it's easy to add high-speed DVD- and CD-burning capability to most any existing Apple model," said Larry O'Connor, president of OWC. "And the best part is we are able to provide compatibility with all of the popular software applications including Apple iDVD, Apple DVD Studio, Apple DiscBurner, Apple iTunes, Roxio Toast, CharisMac Discribe, NTI Dragonburn and others."

In addition to the internal upgrades, OWC also offers external solutions such as the OWC Mercury Pro 8x DVR-107 DVD(R/RW FireWire/USB SuperDrive solution for $179.95 and the OWC Neptune 4x DVR-107 FireWire-only solution for $159.95. Both the Mercury Pro DVR-107 and the Neptune DVR-107 are plug-and-play-compatible with virtually any Macintosh or PC system with an available FireWire and/or USB port (for Mercury solution only). Also, both include Dantz Retrospect backup and restore software, NTI Dragonburn, five pieces of DVD-R media and 25 pieces of CD-R media.

"Our SuperDrive solutions have had very positive reviews from the press and from customers alike, with the Mercury Pro DVD/CD recording solution receiving an Editor's Choice designation in the August 2004 edition of MacAddict and rating of four mice out of five from Macworld," O'Connor said. "These high-quality upgrades make burning CDs and DVDs quick and easy, and whether a customer needs an internal upgrade or an external solution, OWC is able to quite literally bring older computers 'up to speed' better than ever before."

All OWC internal and external SuperDrives come with a one-year warranty and step-by-step instructions for easy installation. OWC also offers a trade-in rebate of up to $79 for the return of a properly functioning Apple CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM or DVD-RW drive replaced by a new OWC internal SuperDrive upgrade.
