CD Freaks present you with its latest review of the Plextor PX-W4824A drive. It took us some time to finish but quality takes time
[i]A few weeks ago Plextor announced its latest recorder, the Plextor PX-W4824A. This drive is one of the fastest recorders available today and is the first Plextor drive to support the new ultra speed CD-ReWriting standard with which it’s possible to re-write at an amazing speed of 24X.
Of course this new Plextor drive has much more to offer than just increased re-write speeds. Some new and improved features include the fastest access time ever (< 65ms), Mount Rainier support and 48X CAV recording of data and audio. Some major changes compared to their previous model, the Plextor PX-W4012A since this drive had rather high access times, no Mount Rainier support, used the Z-CLV write method and was limited to writing audio at ‘just’ 24X.
In this review we will take a thorough look at this latest Plextor drive and see if it can live up to the ‘Plextor standards’. During this review we will also explain some of the decisions Plextor took with this new drive such as why the drive is by default limited to 40X reading instead of 48X it can reach. Read on to find out what we have to say about this new and improved (?) Plextor drive![/i]
