No, check the specs again they're not even close.
And I don't think, Plextor would dare to sell such crap. I bought this drive a few days ago and was able to burn about 2 or 3 DVDs (out of 15), which could afterwards be read without errors. No matter which media used.
Those two drives have nothing to do with one another. The specs are completely different, and the drives look completely different as well.
4x is 8x?
