It is listed as a 40X reader in many places, as it can only read data, mode 1 CD's at 48X with SpeedRead enabled. Even with SpreedRead enabled, audio (mode 2), CD-RW media can only be read at 40X max - a good strategy in my opinion as it allows for a much more precise, less stress, less error, less noise read .

Hey Clint this Plextor 48x/24x/48x drive is smooth as silk to say the least and fast too! Man, Plextor has delivered what I was waiting for. Haven't had any problems at all. But I still have my Plextor 24x setting in the slot above it too. I still can't believe the $128.00 price I paid at Provantage.com, and I ordered it on thursday at 4:30 p. m. and UPS was knocking on my door with the drive on Friday afternoon at 1:oo!!!

Does it have a new "belt" tray loading mechanism, or the good old gear loading??

Where's yours made in??

Sounds great, just waiting on the review

Clint it still has the old "Space Age" plastic gears! Nevertheless, soooo quite you cannot even hear it loading/unloading the disk. It also has the "Black Tray" and a "Emergency Eject Hole" that has a small round shaft key to fit in the hole to eject the disk.

In addition, it is made in the USA, but I just wish we could get the “Two-year” warranty here!

Are you sure about it having the same gear load mechanism?? All the PX-W4824TA's I've seen have a belt loading mechanism - like the one on the Harwarezone preview of the eval unit. (In the pic, you will see the rubber 'band' belt used for the tray...)

*I'm asking because belt loading trays aren't supposed to be as reliable as gear driven ones, the gears may be louder, but the belts can wear out quicker, and become loose *

BTW, I didn't know Plextor's were also made in the USA, does it say on top of the drive?? - Have a look on the sticker on top of the drive to see where it was manufactured!!

Usually the European/US are made in China nowadays, but there are also some made in Japan. All Asia/Ociania Plextor's are made in Japan.
