Plextor announces PX-712SA, a SATA DVD drive

Plextor announced its new internal CD/DVD recorder, PX-712SA, that supports 12x DVD burn speed that theoretically enables to write 4.7GB in 6 minutes. Other speeds are:

  • 12x DVD+R recording
  • 4x DVD+RW recording
  • 8x DVD-R recording
  • 4x DVD-RW recording
  • 48x CD and 24x CD-RW recording
  • 16x DVD reading

The drive has 8MB buffer and supports Buffer Underrun Proof (CD), Lossless Linking (DVD+R/W) and Zero Link (DVD-R/W) buffer protection. Similar to the previous model, PX-712SA allows burning up to 1GB onto a 99-min blank due to GigaRec support.

The bundle includes Ahead Nero Burning ROM, Ahead InCD, Nero BackItUp, Pinnacle Studio, CyberLink PowerDVD, PlexTools Professional. The drive is to go on sale in June for €200 (no VAT included).
