Long ago, Teac used to be a major player in the burner market; those who had the wonderful CD-R55S know why. If it lost its place due to the relentless successes of Sanyo, Plextor and Yamaha, it did not lose the excellence of its products. Witness the CD-W524E. It has Safe Link anti-buffer underrun and 2 MB of cache. It records CD-Rs in 24x and Z-CLV, CD-RW in 10x, and reads CDs in 40x max.

The CDW512E comes with Nero Burning Rom 5.5 by Ahead Software, a Teac CD-R and CD-RW. It supports overburning, DAO-RAW, and reads CD-Text.
