Sony was one of the first burner manufacturers. Its offering is the CRX175A-RP, a 24x IDE burner with 2 MB of cache. It records CD-Rs in 24x using the Z-CLV mode, CD-RWs in 10x and CLV, and reads CDs in 40x max. It does not support overburning, which is something to note, handicapping it against the competition. However, it does have Power Burn technology, which is similar to Burn-Proof and prevents buffer underrun.
The burner comes with B's Recorder, B's Clip, Retrospect Express, Photo Base, Music Match Jukebox and Arcsoft Video Impression software.
