Plextor PX-760A DVD Burner Review

I just posted the article Plextor PX-760A DVD Burner Review.

Plextor SA/NV (b) were kind enough to send us their latest flagship DVD Re-Writer, the Plextor PX-760A for review.

The Plextor PX-760A supports 18x DVD±R, 8x/6x DVD+RW/DVD-RW and 10x/6x DVD+R DL/DVD-R DL writing technology, allowing Double/Dual Layer discs of 8.5Gb to be written. So far this DVD-Burner is the world’s first official released burner that will allow 18x writing speed on the DVD±R format.

The 18x burn times are nothing special. Compare them with the burn times for LG’s range of writers using P-CAV for 16x burning. The LGs have 16x burn times that are either equal to or faster than this drive’s 18x burning times. The 16x burn time table used for this review is out of date. I’m not sure why different reviewers seem to use different tables for this purpose but you can see the 16x burn times of the LG GSA-4167B and GSA-H10A from the table used in the H10A review : Considering the earlier GSA-4163B (released in 2004)has near identical burn times for 16x burns with the newer LG writers, it means Plextor’s 18x burning is a farce!

Generally each reviewer uses data from drives we have reviewed ourselves, in the same system, under the same conditions, for our timing tables, etc etc. Compiled data disc’s can vary slightly in size from one review to the next, using ones own timings is the only fair way to present the tables.

Pinnacle 10.6 (the latest) still suffers from audio drift when backing up or creating DVDs. This has been true for me from Studio 8 on up to the latest one out. Are there any editors out there that don’t have this problem? Also, menus you create seem to be ok in the menu editor; but, when you burn a disc there are usually some strange results such as button links not going where you put them, program crashes on complicated menus, etc. Anyone else have these problems.

I have has numerous problems with 10.6. The program will crash in the middle of editing a product. The program will run slow! I have lost projest that I spent hours and hours on because incompatible format. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it 8 times in the past 6 month for prolems. They offered the 10.7 patch and then when I work on a project it won’t play the videos you draged down. I have sepnt hours on the phone with tech support and they still can get anything right. I’m ready to toss the progrm and going with another company!!! :frowning: :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:
