Does anyone know of any reviews on Plextors new 807uf external drive?
I was just about ready to purchase the 807a when I seen the new 807uf on Plextors site. I’m just wondering if its any faster since it uses USB 2 and Firewire.
The Plextor site says it burns DVD+R in 8 minutes, same as the 807a. I was just hoping maybe the USB 2 might help it transfer information faster then the internal bus speed.
Then again my bus speed runs at 800mhz, stock, so maybe the internal 807a drive would be faster for me.
Any opinions or reviews on this?
I just did some reading on the specs on these 2 drives on Plextors site. The only differnce I can find is the 807uf using USB 2 has a burst read/write of 480/mbs.
The internal 807a using Ultra DMA mode 2 only has 33/mbs.
Theoretically this wont improve the write times since the drives only write at 8-10mbs but it should improve read times dramatically. Also it should improve times for testing before the actual burn.
Any thoughts on this?
