than a speeding bullet, the TrueX 72X is the
Superman of CD-ROM

"The TrueX technology actually lives up to
its hype, and despite its great performance leap
over traditional technology, it does not cost
too much to be impractical. "

"I have to say I'm very impressed with the
Kenwood 72x. I am also not surprised that
Kenwood has taken this new and innovative
approach to their CDROM solutions. The 7-beam
system is a great idea, the fact that the CDROM
spins less, is quieter, and much faster can only
be termed as a major benefit. I'm awarding the
2000 Editor's Choice Award for Best CDROM Drive
to Kenwood; Nice Work People."

"Fastest just got faster. Kenwood has upped
the ante from 52x to 72x with its new 72X TrueX
CD drive. As with the previous models of Kenwood
TrueX drives I've tested, this one sets new
standards. . .
If it's time to upgrade your CD-ROM drive and
only the fastest will do, look no further than
Kenwood's 72X TrueX drive. It replaces the
Kenwood 52X TrueX on our WinList (a product
whose price has just dropped to $99.95--an even
better buy than before)."

"Speed is of the essence for Kenwood
Technologies. When they make an optical drive,
you know it's going to be fast. Time and again,
Kenwood Technologies has shown us the fastest,
hottest CD-ROM drives. Kenwood's latest drive,
the 72X TrueX drive, is the fastest one it has
made to date.
We've always found Kenwood Technologies TrueX
CD-ROM drives to be top of the line performers,
and so it is here. If you buy a new CD-ROM
drive, make sure Kenwood's name is on the box.
72X True X CD-ROM Drive
No "specsmanship" just performance!
David Altavilla, HotHardware.com
"Simply put, this is one great CD-ROM drive.
The Kenwood 72X TrueX lives up to it claims of
"the fastest CD-ROM Drive on earth". It is also
one of the quietest. It is absolutely
The Editor Choice Award is a "no-brainer" on
this one folks!"
