CDRLabs
17 April 2010
  • Conclusion: As a leader in the industry, we've come to expect a lot from Plextor. Over the years, the company has introduced some of the fastest and most feature packed optical drives available. With the PX-B940SA, Plextor has tried to continue this trend.
  • Pros: Writes to BD-R and BD-R DL media at 12x, Writes to BD-RE and BD-RE DL media at 2x, Writes to DVD-R and DVD+R media at 16x, Writes to DVD+RW media at 8x, Writes to DVD-RW media at 6x, Writes to DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media at 8x, Reads single layer BD-ROM's at 8x, Reads BD-R, BD-RE and BD-R DL medi...
  • Cons: Questionable writing quality with some DVD+R DL media, Had a hard time reaching its rated BD and DVD read speeds, Reads CD-RW media at only 24x, Cannot set the book type of DVD+R and DVD+RW media, Overburns to only 94:27, Not supported by PlexUtilities software

  • Summary: Now that we've seen that the PX-B940SA is a capable reader, we'll follow up with some writing tests on both DVD and BD-R media.  We used a limited selection of media, but the drives performance seems to be consistent on older media as well as brand new disks.
  • Pros: Fast 12x BD-R write speed (rated), Full software bundle, Excellent warranty support, Fast reader and writer of all media (tested) except BD-R, Support for +/- DVDs, CD-R, CD-RW, BD-R, BD-RE media
  • Cons: BD-R SL and BD-R DL Write Tests:, Wasn't able to write BD-R SL and DL media at rated speed, A little expensive compared to other similar drives, 12x BD-R media not available so fast speeds are moot at this point

  • Conclusion: Whether the Plextor PX-B940SA is worth its price of close to £200 depends on personal use, and whether the user required 25GB of optical storage for their files. If you’re in the market for a Blu-Ray drive, and want to make sure it’s not outdated any time soon, the PX-B940SA could be a viable...

  • Excerpt: Nos disponemos a analizar una grabadora con soporte para el formato Blu-ray que se caracteriza por su estabilidad y a la altura de anteriores modelos

  • Cons: Aunque resulta muy estable, se echa en falta un búfer de memoria superior a los 4 Mbytes que ofrece

  • Excerpt: Publicerad 2010-03-15 14:44 Plextors nya Blu-ray-brännare är snabbare än de skrivbara skivorna på marknaden. Blu-ray-formatet har kommit långt sedan vinsten över HD-DVD. I dag hittar vi BD-enheter i de flesta bärbara datorer i det så kallade desktop replacement-segmentet, under miljontals...
  • Pros: Snabbast hittills.
  • Cons: Dyr. BD-skivorna hänger inte med i skrivande stund.
