Plextor Ships First 18X DVD±R Burner

Plextor announced the PX-760A DVD±R/RW CD-R/RW drive, aimed at professionals and power PC users.

The PX-760A is a DVD/CD burner that delivers recording speeds of 18X DVD±R on certified 16X DVD±R media. Users can burn up to four hours of high-quality MPEG-2/DVD video on a single 8.5 GB disc using 10X DVD+R on Double-Layer media and 6X DVD-R on Dual Layer media. The drive also supports 8X DVD+RW and 6X DVD-RW Rewriting; 16X max DVD-Reading; and 48X CD-R Writing, 24X CD-RW Rewriting, and 48X max CD-Reading. DVD±VR is supported for direct disc recording, while DVD+RW background format eliminates the need to manually format a DVD+RW disc.

The internal PX-760A drive features an E-IDE (ATAPI) interface. A short drive length of 6.69 inches accommodates small form-factor PCs, while a replaceable beige front bezel allows a user to change the appearance of the drive to match a computer. The PX-760A has a 2 MB buffer and features Buffer Underrun Proof Technology to prevent buffer underrun errors and allow multi-tasking.

The PX-760A also features AUTOSTRATEGY, a technology that selects the optimized write strategy for every DVD disc and, if necessary, creates a new write strategy for unknown media (DVD+/-R). PoweRec adjusts laser power and writing speed to optimum levels for a particular disc.

The PX-760A Series drive includes PlexTools Professional software, a unique combination of user-controllable CD recording and CD/DVD media test features, including PlexEraser, Q-Check, GigaRec, SecureRecording, Silent Mode, and VariRec.

The PX-760A drive ships with the award-winning Roxio Easy Media Creator 7, Basic DVD Edition software suite for burning video, music, photos, and data to DVD or CD.

The Plextor PX-760A drive will ship to distributors in North and South America in April 2006 with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $119.00 USD. All retail packages include one-year full warranty and unlimited toll-free technical support.
