Plextor is expanding its range with its first slot loading Double layer Dual Format drive. The PX-716AL writes at 16X for DVD+R, 16X for DVD-R and 4X for DVD+R DL (Double Layer).
The drive also rewrites 8X DVD+RW and 4X DVD-RW. The PX-716AL reads CD-ROMs at 48X and DVD-ROMs at 16X.
The PX-716AL comes in internal version (bulk) with a slot loading mechanism. The PX-716AL provides a longer life span and increased durability, as there is no risk of a tray being broken.
Beginning of March 2005, firmware 1.05 will be released to support 6x writing on DVD-R DL media.
The PX-716AL is supported by a Fast Warranty Service by Plextor, by which any inconveniences resulting from a defect are reduced to a minimum. The firmware is stored in FlashROM which makes it possible to quickly and easily upgrade to the latest version. CD TEXT is also completely supported.
