  • Excerpt: Ever since Plextor stopped manufacturing the PX-755SA DVD burner, we’ve been on the hunt for a worthy replacement. We loved the Plexy’s SATA interface, so we’re not settling for anything less going forward.

  • Cons: Rewriteable speeds could be faster; nothing special in the looks department.
