TEAC SHIPS ITS FIRST
MACINTOSH-COMPATIBLE FLOPPY DRIVE
Hot-Swappable USB Floppy Drive Delivers Compatibility for iMac and G3 Users
(MONTEBELLO, CA)TEAC, a world leader and pioneer in the manufacture
of floppy disk drives and other removable storage technology, today
announces the shipping of its new USB Floppy Drive for the iMac and
the Power Macintosh G3. The USB drive is TEAC's first offering for
iMac and G3 users, providing a hot-swappable, external floppy drive
for backup, transfer and installation of data.
TEAC's iMac floppy drive utilizes the Universal Serial Bus (USB)
interface of the iMac and G3 systems, allowing plug-and-play
convenience by eliminating the need to turn-off or restart the
computer when attaching the new floppy drive. Being a one-cable
device, the iMac floppy drive does not require a second power supply
as may be needed by other peripheral storage devices and requires
only one simple installation.
"TEAC is proud to offer the addition of Macintosh-compatible hardware
to our product line-up," stated Les Luzar, division manager, TEAC's
Data Storage Products Division. "Now, Macintosh users can add the
familiarity of a floppy drive to their iMac and G3 systems."
TEAC's iMac floppy drive is compact and lightweight with the same
transparent, Blueberry appearance that characterizes the iMac and G3.
The drive is shipping now with an MSRP of $99 and is available at
selected retailers. Like all of TEAC's Data Storage Products, the
iMac floppy drive is available to resellers and VARs through the
company's network of authorized distributors.
Since 1953, TEAC Corporation has been an innovator and worldwide
leader in the development and manufacturing of audio, video and data
recording technologies. Its products are utilized in the computer

drives. The division also is a top worldwide manufacturer of
