Quick, yet reliable

With consumer demand for faster CD recording speeds, the latest CD-RW drive from Philips features 20x recording, 10x rewriting and 40x reading speeds. The Philips PCRW2010 also incorporates advanced, proprietary technologies that help to deliver faster speed while minimizing errors.
Utilizing SeamlessLink technology, the PCRW2010 virtually eliminates buffer "under-run" errors, a common cause of recording failure and wasted media. This technology monitors the CD recording status and if necessary, pauses the recording when the data buffer becomes nearly empty. Once the buffer is again filled, the recording is resumed exactly where it was paused for a successful and "seamless" recording.
CD recording integrity has been increased by also adding Thermo Balanced Writing (TBW) technology. TBW technology optimizes the PCRW2010's writing capability by adjusting the laser power for different types and qualities of CD-R disks. This helps to minimize the chances of data retrieval problems.
Philips has made the installation process easier, by including video instructions to show you exactly how to mount this drive into your PC. The installation software automatically checks the PC configuration and updates key parameters to optimize CD recording and rewriting performance.
The Philips PCRW2010 is supplied with Nero software from AHEAD. This powerful software helps you easily create CD-Rs and CD-RWs right out of the box, because of Nero's simple, intuitive user interface. The PCRW2010 drive also supports the CD text function, which allows the display of additional text information recorded on CDs.
This drive has been available since late summer 2001.
