The drive is supplied in Bulk-package.
The complete set includes:
The appearance of the SCSI-drive is much different
from the analog model with IDE interface not only in design features
of the front panel but also in a more informative indication system.
The front panel is similar to its elder SCSI sibling - the PlexWriter
PX-W124Tsi, it contains 4 LEDs giving the full possible information
on the CD-RW drive status. All buttons are sunk accurately. Another
difference from the PlexWriter PX-W1210TA concludes in that the
PX-W1210Si has a Play/Next button on the front panel for controlling
an audio CD without OS interference (5). By the way, this button
can be rarely come across on the CD-RW recorders. Headphone jack
(2) and volume control (3) are also sunk. The tray (1) is completely
goes inside the case without even a customary prominent part. The
drive can be installed both in horizontal and in vertical positions,
for what it's supplied with two spring clamps. They don't provide
proper CD mounting, though.
The rear panel is typical for the SCSI recorder,
but for one thing - this model is noticeable for a fan. Despite
the simplicity, the user's manual offers the detailed information
on all connectors.
The special attention is paid to a SPDIF output
and its connection.
Plextor company offers also an external solution
of the model under consideration.
