VeloCD is the line of CD-RW drives released by TDK. They have expanded to accomodate both internal and external varieties of CD burners, however they have yet to move onto DVD recording.

The VeloCD line has gained recognition for consistently putting out drives with the highest speed ratings on the market. At the time of this writing, the fastest available under the VeloCD brand is the internal 48/16/48 version , with a retail price of around $130.

The drives are characterized by a sleek, blue design as opposed to the monotonous gray. The drives are very reliable, and are bundled with Ahead's Nero burning software.

The CD-RW drive market is beginning to narrow down due to the advent of DVD-RW and DVD+RW technology. The current major competitors include TDK, Plextor, Sony, Lite-On, and Yamaha.
