Introduction

When one thinks of CD-RW drives today, what manufacturers come to mind? Plextor, Yamaha, and Ricoh typically enter this reviewer's mind as a result of their generally well-regarded reputations. Although TEAC's data storage products do not enjoy the name-recognition that many of their other electronic components do, they have slowly amassed a reputation in many circles as a maker of high-quality, low-cost burners.

Featuring a generic, no-frills look, this TEAC's unassuming outward appearance is a far cry from the customized faceplates found on the likes of TDK and Ricoh. Even a printed manufacturer logo is absent from the face-they reserve the TEAC name and model # for the sticker adorning the top of the drive.

But does TEAC break through the Clark Kent exterior as many CD-RW enthusiasts claim? Or is its performance as mild-mannered as its appearance? We'll find out shortly, but first, let's examine the CD-W512's specifications!
