- Plextor PX-708A DVD±RW

When you hear of a new product by Plextor, it practically speaks for itself. "Quality", "Performance", the King of the Hill when it comes to burners basically. Well, they've yet again proven to us all that this will continue to be the case for some time. Their new PX-708A DVD writer certainly looks to be the part, particularly with it's blitzing 8x dvd writing speed that effictively doubles that of current writers on the market today. Check it out in more detail over at Designtechnica.

The Plextor PlexWriter PX-708A is currently the fastest DVD+/-RW drive on the market with its 8X DVD+R write performance. We experienced no problems burning content to any of our test media and were able to heavily multi-task while doing so. The included software suite is very robust and complete compared to other DVD writers on the market. It should be a while until we see the next generation of dual format DVD writers hit the market so if you have been waiting to make a DVD writer purchase, now is the time and the PX-708A is what you will want.
