Hardware Upgrade heeft een review gepost van een Ricoh MP7040A-DP EIDE rewriter:
Mastering process of CD-R supports didnít encounter any problem; at the speed of 4x all the copies have been carried successfully; the master allows to create copies in overburning and even with these there has been no problem. This is the same for rewritable supports too which had no problem even at 4x. The good writing performances are also due to the buffer of 2 Mbytes which allows to reduce the risks of buffer underrun. Working temperature during the master phase has always been low, clearly lower than that usually achieved with master at the same speed and this is the same for noise too.
