Plextor launches the fastest dual format DVD recorder


Plextor announced the new PX-708A (internal version) and PX-708UF (external version) dual format DVD recorders. Both drives write and rewrite at a speed of no less than 8x and 4x with DVD plus, and 4x and 2x with DVD minus respectively. The recorders read DVD-ROMs at 12x. Besides DVDs, CDs can also obviously be used in the drives, and this at a reading and writing speed of 40x and a rewriting speed of 24x.

Both DVD recorders make use of Buffer Underrun Proof, PoweRec and VariRec technology. The internal version PX-708A is fitted with an E-IDE (ATAPI) interface and is available with a white or black front. The external version PX-708UF has a USB 2.0 and an IEEE 1394 (FireWire) interface. In line with tradition, both new releases are supplied as a total package including professional software.

To prevent Buffer Underruns the PX-708A and the PX-708UF use Buffer Underrun Proof technology (for CDs), Lossless Linking (for DVD+R/RW) and Zero Link technology (for DVD-R/RW). Thanks to the Background Formatting function both drives can also format while writing.

The PX-708A and the PX-708UF are also provided with Plextor's 'PoweRec' technology (Plextor Optimised Writing Error Reduction Control) that determines the optimal speed for burning depending on the quality of the used CD-R, so also helps avoid write errors. Plextor's 'VariRec' technology gives the user a choice between eight different tone settings for the improvement and personalising of sound recordings.

The PX-708A has an E-IDE (ATAPI) interface and is available with a white or black front. The retail version consists of: the PX-708A, 1 E-IDE (ATAPI) cable and a full manual in 16 languages. An extensive software package for processing videos, photographs, audio and data is also supplied as standard: Ahead Nero (CD/DVD Mastering software), Ahead InCD (Packet Writing software), Pinnacle Studio 8 (Video Editing and Authoring software), Cyberlink Power DVD (DVD Player software) and PlexTools Professional (CD/DVD Utility software).

The external version PX-708UF has a USB 2.0 and an IEEE 1394 (FireWire) interface. The retail version consists of: the PX-708UF, 1 USB interface cable, 1 IEEE 1394 (FireWire) interface cable, a manual in 16 languages and the same full software package as the internal version.

The PX-708A and the PX-708UF will be available from the end of August and the end of September 2003 respectively from Plextor sales outlets for a recommended retailprice of 275 EUR (excl. VAT) for the PX-708A and 349 EUR* (excl. VAT) for the PX-708UF.
