Plextor PlexWriter 12/10/32A CD-RW Drive User ReviewsPC
This burner is the best around, with all the features you could ask for in a burner besides writing at 20xThe bad:
150ms access time... big deal... you got a CDROM for READING dontcha????Summary:
This cdrw is the best one I have ever owned, it can copy anything, and i mean ANYthing... in under 8 minutes too. The only way I'll upgrade after this one is if/when they put out a 24x version. Buy one today!
I use it to burn audio CDs which it does flwlessly but it takes 16 to 24 min. depending on what software I use. Plextor's disk Doop (16 min) is easy to use but where is the 6 min. I have been reading about.The bad:
Takes forever to burn a audio CD.Summary:
If your lookin go burn audio CDs this is not the one to go with. I hate it.
Several online reviews gave this drive a lower grade than others because of its "limited" software suite.
How many people would actually install all those 'xtra' mp3 players or rippers and all those crappy bonus softwares bundles ?
Just a waste of space.
Although I don't use windows often but I found the package came with this drive is excellent. They are chosen for just 1 sole purpose, 'burning' .
just another tip, I upgraded the firmware to version 1.08 and the average cd reading speed increase from 16x to 24x ... outstanding
Makes excellent copy of the audio CD, my previous CD-RW (HP-8200i)was good for copying data but Plextor takes the cake when it comes to audio.The bad:
None so farSummary:
This is THE CD-RW for anyone keen on copying audio, tried various software, including AudioFS, DiscDupe 2000 and NERO all seem to work flawlessly.
Burn-proof not only saves disks ($$$) but time as well (not having to make copy again with a new disk).
Audiophiles look no further, this is it!
An excellent drive, plays flawlessly, and records on most any type media I can find.The bad:
Havent found anything bad yet, and don't expect I will.Summary:
I have this unit installed on my P-III 800, along with a Pioneer 115 DVD. The two units complement each other with both having 2 mb cache ram. When writing to cd's there is never a buffer under-run between them, and the "Burn-Proof" software just makes it so much the better. The bundled Adaptec software is easy to use, as is the Plextor software. Just put in a blank disk, open the Plextor app, and click start, It does the rest. The Plextor app named "Disk-Dupe" is too easy, and it works every time. It can copy nearly any cd or dvd (remember piracy is stealing)so back-ups are a snap.
fast, no more coasters!!!!!!!The bad:
You can now get 16x burners and TDK's Velo CD rips audio better & has Burn-Proof as well.Summary:
from what I hear TDK's Velo CD is much better at audio ripping, get one of those babys!!!!!!!!
P.S. 16x Burners are starting to emerge!!!!!!! the first is from YAMAHA. worth a look.
