Conclusion: Like many, I look back fondly on Plextor's "Premium" series of CD and DVD writers. With their impressive performance and innovative features, these drives repeatedly raised the bar for the rest of the industry. With the PX-LB950UE, Plextor has tried to continue this trend. While not of the same caliber as their "Premium" drives, this new external Blu-ray Disc writer offers a long list of features as well as some of the fastest BD reading and writing speeds available.
