Almost any DVD writer on the market today can do that much. Even my worst-performing 16x DVD writers are good with TY and some other disks. I guess Plextor users tend to use higher quality media than BTC or Samsung users. Since people who consciously buy Lite-On or BTC or Samsung optical drives usually choose such brand names for low cost, they are more likely to choose media (manufacturer) names like Princo and Infodisc. Likewise, most Supermicro motherboard users use expensive dual Xeon processors whereas most ECS motherboard users use cheapest processors like Athlon and C3 processors and they don't try US$300 cooling and US$600 graphic cards on them.
Personally, my best Plextor drive was PX-W1210TA which I gave to a friend in Busan. Next is probably PX-40TSi. Third is PX-708A. Since it's a question about 7XX burner, my answer is NO. What I liked most in PX-W1210TA was Plextor name. Next thing I liked in 1210TA was that it proved well about burn-proofing technology to prevent most buffer-underrun errors contrary to the claims from some people. Thid thing was that I could burn hundreds of disks in few days. What I disliked most in PX-708A was that the distributor in Seoul was arrogant and ignorant. Next was that much cheaper LDW-401S/411S could do nearly the same (and their distributor was very cooperative and knowledgeable.)
