Its hard to say how the Plextor drive will perform with SD 2.80 without having one…does anyone so far own already one? Has it at all been delivered to any vendors yet?


#3

does the 52/24/52 model exist?

only 52 speed model i know from plextor is the 52/32/52 premium wich is to be launched next month and cost about €190.
couldnt find any 52/24/52 model on the plextor site too.

i don’t think a plextor 52/24/52 model exists either.

i could be wrong, but wasn’t plextor part of that group that said they wouldn’t make drives above 48x?

they going to lauch a 52 speed writer (premium model) thats for sure. you can find that info on the plextor site too.
but never heard or read anything about an 52/24/52 model.

yeah, i know about the 52/32/52, but i thought plextor said they wouldn’t go above 48x for fear of exploding discs.

And there are already 54x CD writers from another Japanese maker, Mitsumi! :wink:

54 speed compared to 52 speed = almost no diffrence in time
not worth the risk that your cd will crash in hundred pieces in your drive. imho
