Which CD-RW to buy

I'm deciding to get either a

RICOH MP7060A 20x/6x/4x EIDE CDRW
or a
YAMAHA 4416E 16x/4x/4x EIDE CDRW.

Which one should i get?
Or any other brands?
What should I look for in a Cd-rw drive.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In my opinion, these are both good brands.  I'd opt for the Ricoh, however, as it's 20X on read and 6X for CD-R.  These things are NEVER fast enough!

I didn't find either of the above models in the list but I think it may be out of date.
