That seems a good recommendation if the original poster wants a DVD writer that can also write CDs. However, he asked for a CD writer.
If so - I'm curious - why NEC? I'm using a ND-2500A to write DVDs, and if I needed another DVD writer today I'd buy another. However, I'm not sure I'd buy NEC if I wanted a CD-RW - I'd probably buy Lite On, Asus or Plextor depending on budget and precisely what I wanted.
