Let’s hope this means we still can find Plex drives in the market - this meaning CD writes and DVD burners. And along that line that CDRW Premium II out of the list means it will continue to be available.


What is the best of the best Plextor Drives, CD Burner and DVD Burner? I want to know if I should save up for them or get a different Brand…
