The lowest-priced of our internal IDE CD-RW drives is the $160 Ricoh MediaMaster MP7040A. At $70 less than the Hewlett-Packard, the Ricoh also features 4X write and 4X rewrite speeds through an EIDE connection. The 20X read speed is just slightly lower than HP's 24X, but the difference is fairly negligible. The software bundle contains CeQuadrat Win OnCD, PacketCD, just!audio and Seagate Backup Exec. One CD-R disk and one CD-RW disk are included for your burning enjoyment.
