Plextor America Ships External 16X DVD Burner


Plextor announced Thusday the immediate availability of the PX-740UF DVD+/-R/RW drive.

According to the company, the concept behind the PX-740 Series drives is simple: give customers the fast recording speed and high level of reliability for which Plextor is known, without professional features they don't need. Note that the drive is based on a Philips chipset.



A dual interface supports both Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and full-speed compliant IEEE-1394 FireWire. Burst data transfer rates of 480 Mbps (USB) or 400 Mbps (Firewire) allow a user to burn a 4.7GB DVD+R disc in approximately six minutes.

The PX-740UF delivers recording speeds of 16X DVD+/-R on recommended single-layer DVD media. Users also can burn up to four hours of high-quality MPEG-2/DVD video on a single 8.5 GB disk using 8X DVD+R on Double-Layer (DL) DVD media and 4X DVD-R on Dual Layer (DL) DVD media.

The Plextor PX-740UF Series drive supports 8X DVD+R DL, 4X DVD-R DL, and 16X DVD+/-R Writing; 8X DVD+RW and 6X DVD-RW Rewriting; and 16X max DVD-Reading; as well as high-speed 48X CD-R Writing, 32X CD-RW Rewriting, and 48X max CD-Reading.

The PX-740UF drive has a 2 MB buffer and features Buffer Underrun Proof Technology to prevent buffer underrun errors and allow multi-tasking. Lossless Linking/Zero Link technology enables users to perform basic editing tasks directly on the DVD disc. The PX-740UF also supports DVD+RW background format, which eliminates the need to format a DVD+RW disc manually, thus reducing the total time it takes to write data to a disc.

The PX-740UF drive ships with the Nero 6 software suite for burning video, music, photos, and data to DVD or CD. The Plextor bundle includes Nero Express 6 for CD & DVD recording; NeroVision Express 2 SE for DVD video editing and authoring; Nero PhotoShow Express for photo management and editing; InCD 4.2 for drag & drop packet writing; Nero Showtime for video playback; and Nero Toolkit for drive test and speed control.

Pricing and Availability

The Plextor PX-740UF drive will ship to distributors in North and South America in September 2005 with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $179.00 USD. All retail packages include one-year full warranty.
