TDK AI-401248BX 40x12x48x IDE CD-RW Drive

TDK smashes the speed barrier with its 40/12/48 veloCD ReWriter. The proof is in the numbers: burn a full CD in 3 minutes with 40x writing and rip a 3-minute audio track in 5 seconds with 48x digital audio extraction. If you demand uncompromising quality and unrivaled performance, you need the flagship veloCD 40/12/48, the world's first 40x CD burner. With 48x ripping and 40x writing, the new veloCD burner is so fast it may be the only drive you need. For CD-to-CD-R recording, it's a one-drive alternative that's better sounding and takes less than half the time of most two-drive setups.
