Apart from Sanyo and Yamaha, Ricoh is one of the few manufacturers to produce its own burners and the technologies that go with them. This make deserves its renown, and the MP7200A is its flagship CD-RW burner. It has 2 MB of cache, uses the Z-CLV mode for writing, and records CD-Rs in 20x and CD-RW in 10x.

The MP7200A comes with Nero Burning Rom 5.5 and InCD 1.9 by Ahead Software, a Ricoh CD-R, and a CD-RW. It includes the Just Link and Just Speed technologies for optimal recording consistency. And it has a new chip to reduce consumption and increase writing stability.
