X-bit labs
20 December 2006
  • Summary: DVD-burners from Plextor have been traditionally regarded as special products. Even without knowing exactly why, you realize you can expect something more from them than from ordinary products after you’ve taken a look at the price tag.

  • Conclusion: Plextor's PX-760A is the first 18X burner to be launched on the market. However, the DVD-R DL writing speed remains at 6X. All tests have been done with the auto selection mode enabled in order to let the drive choose the best writing strategy.

27 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Plextor PX-760A. Pierwsza i w tej chwili jedyna nagrywarka DVD pozwalająca na zapis płyt z prędkością x18. Oczywiście tylko dwóch płyt :-) Ale to zawsze coś. Jakość zapisu z tą prędkością jest bardzo wysoka. Poza tą drobną kosmetyczną zmianą jest to znany już od dwóch miesięcy Plextor PX-755A.
  • Pros: Brak możliwości eksportu i importu bazy danych AutoStrategy, Słaba wydajność mechanizmu korekcji błędów, Bardzo długi czas odczytu płyt zabezpieczonych LaserLock
  • Cons: AutoStrategy, XXI odpowiednik gwoździa: PlexEraser, SecuREC, GigaREC, VariREC, Pakiet PlexTools
