PX-716 - Plextor's first Dual Layer Better late than never? The legendary CD-R(W) drive manufacturer finally enters the Dual Layer market, being among the last of the major industry players. As the market already is reaching maturity, Plextor is certainly facing a challenge. Can they still dominate by releasing products of quality above the competition?
Plextor, one of the leading companies for the development and production of reliable, high quality CD/DVD peripherals is expanding its range with its first external Double layer Dual Format drive. The PX-716UF writes at 16X for DVD+R, 16X for DVD-R and 4X for DVD+R DL (Double Layer). The drive rewrites 8X DVD+RW and 4X DVD-RW. The PX-716UF reads CD-ROMs at 48X and DVD-ROMs at 16X.
The PX-716UF is an external drive with a Tray load mechanism.
The Retail package includes: PX-716UF (DVD Recorder), USB cable, IEEE 1394 (FireWire) cable, power cable, power adapter, Plextor CD/DVD Utility Software (PlexTools Professional), 16-language manual, attractive software from: Ahead, Pinnacle, Cyberlink, Sonic and Ulead (full and trial versions).

The PX-716UF is supported by a Fast Warranty Service by Plextor, by which any inconveniences resulting from a defect are reduced to a minimum. The firmware is stored in FlashROM which makes it possible to quickly and easily upgrade to the latest version. CD TEXT is also completely supported.

With the PX-716UF, the user has a perfect all-in-one product for creating own home videos, back-ups, composition of photograph collections, saving music...
