Here the badly translated information from the Japaneese Plextor site :

PX-708A/JP Open price The middle of September ATAPI built-in type
(BASIC model)

PX-708A/JPB Open price The middle of October ATAPI built-in type

PX-708UF/JP
Open price The middle of October USB2.0 & IEEE1394 outside attaching type
(BASIC model)

PX-708UF/JP

  • Type turn is temporary ones. We publish formal type turn to future
    Open price The middle of October USB2.0 & IEEE1394 outside attaching type
    (Front color ring model 12 color)

See by yourself: ?here

Btw: I just wander any ideas on what /JPB will have, that /JP does not

JP probably means the grey model while JPB means the black model of the PX-708A drive.

Who cares :slight_smile: , of cause they will come out only about in year or so, the main point is to get the drive packed with all this nifty features and ready for x8 :slight_smile:

Philips has recently released the specifications for 8x DVD+R media so I hope it won’t take too long. I’m still searching for 32x CD-RW media too… It’s great drives support faster and faster speeds but without media it’s pretty useless.
