The new Plextor drive helps remove the risk of purchasing a DVD/CD burner that does not comply with future DVD recording standards, and gives customers greater flexibility in choosing which DVDrecordable media they use today.
Plextor’s PX-708A drive supports 8X DVD+R and 4X DVD-R Writing; 4X DVD+RW and 2X DVD-RW Rewriting; and 12X max DVD-Reading. The new DVD/CD burner also boasts high-speed 40X CD-R Writing, 24X CD-RW Rewriting, and 40X max CD-Reading. The internal ATA/ATAPI-5 interface drive includes a bundle of premium digital media software from Roxio, Inc. (NASDAQ:ROXI), including Easy CD & DVD CreatorÂ® 6.1 Basic DVD Edition and PhotoSuite 5 SE.
“DVD burners today are similar to VCRs in the early Eighties, when people had to choose between VHS and Betamax,” said Howard Wing, vice president of sales and marketing for Plextor. “With so many different recordable formats for DVDs, how do users even know which DVD format is compatible with their existing systems? The PX-708A supports nearly every standard in the DVD universe, including DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD-ROM. This highly flexible standard support makes the PX-708A the DVD/CD recorder of choice for the vast majority of business and consumer applications.”
Plextor PX-708A DVDÂ±R/RW Drive
The Plextor PX-708A is a highly versatile DVD/CD burner specifically designed to deliver high-quality recording performance. The drive gives users the ability to create, edit, and share customized DVDs and CDs using video, photos, audio, and data. Lossless-linking technology enables users to perform basic editing tasks directly on the DVD disc, so there is no need to reload DVD content back to a PC to make minor changes, and no need to re-burn an entire DVD after making small edits.
The unit features a 2MB data buffer and burst data transfer rates of 33 MB/sec., allowing users to burn a 4.7GB DVD+R disc in approximately eight minutes. All Plextor DVD/CD drives are designed for easy installation with MicrosoftÂ® WindowsÂ®-based personal computer systems. The PX-708A features an ATA/ATAPI-5 (EIDE) interface, support for horizontal or vertical drive bay orientation, and Plug & Play compatibility with Microsoft Windows 98SE/Me/2000/XP operating systems.
A unique combination of Plextor features and technologies deliver unparalleled CD-R/RW recording reliability. Buffer Underrun Proof technology prevents buffer underrun errors, so users can multi-task during a recording session. PoweRec
