The CD24ri is the latest Hewlett-Packard burner. Though the make used to be faithful to Sony mechanics, it has now turned to Sanyo and its CDR-BP1500P. The CD24ri now has the performance rates of Sanyo-based equipment, and one of its features is Burn-Proof. It has 4 MB of cache and uses the Z-CLV mode to record CD-Rs. Its read performance is satisfactory with a speed of 40x max and an access time of 140 ms.
For its software, HP has also taken its business elsewhere - the CD24ri comes with Nero Burning Rom 5.5 instead of Easy CD Creator. The box also contains a CD-R labeling kit and a disk with a variety of applications, including Music Match Jukebox and Video Impression by Center Arcsoft.
