Worldwide exclusive: 20x CDR-W/DVD combo drive!

The Ricoh 7200 is out from a month ago, but how about a new model from Ricoh with the codename "MP9200A"? Yes you guessed right.

No information is known yet about the drive's shipping date and price but we imagine around August/Semptember 2001. Here are the full specs:
