#1

I was interested, wich burner all others have. I don’t have a expensive writer myself , a Traxdata CDRW2260+, but i intend of buying a newone.
I would like to buy the Plexrewriter 12/4/32
Anyone got some good, or bad experiences with?

Hi

Plextor: good idea. I’ve got one (2) myself: 8/2/20 and 40reader.
THE great advantage: SCSI!!!
I don’t think the 12/4/32 is SCSI (but I’m not sure) If it is: BUY!!!

Shit, because it’s scsi-3 or what


#4

-Plextor PXW-8432a (8/4/32) IDE-

I had a 2 speed Mitsumi before this one… and this Plextor is f**king fast!


#5

I’ve got a plextor 8/4/32 IDE
He’s very fast and I can play Quake 3 Arena while burning!!
Great writer



#6

And wich system specs do you have


#7

I got an philips 4 4 32

I didn’t buy scsi, because i don’t know if i can make an harddisk image on my IDE drive and then burn it on a scsi!

I think that isn’t possible, because IDE is slower than an 8 burner right?

Cya, wannabe

I’ve got a Yamaha 4416 IDE and a Plextor 8x4x32, getting in this week, but the Yamaha has been a very good writer, no coasters yet, that havn’t been my falt. Will post back with my results with the new Plextor. Both I understand are very good writers.

hey wannabe, maybe you should “wannabe” more educated on computers, eh? OF COURSE YOU CAN BURN TO A 8X DRIVE FROM AN IDE HD!!! 8x is fast for cdr(w) drives, but in relation to a hard drive of any kind, the HD blows the burner away! so for future references, you CAN burn to any speed cdr(w) drive from an IDE HD.

Thanks,

But i am not a wannabe, i just needed a name.

You become despered after about 10.000 times trying a nickname


#11

Oh yeah, one qeustion : If I just buy an scsi burner, can i burn on the fly(i have an IDE cd-rom)?


#12

Wanabe: Yes you can burn on the fly.

I got a Yamaha 4416 and a Yamaha 6416.
Both are good writers.

Now a question:
Wich CDR can you take for writing with a Plex 12x? How much cost the Plex 12x?

Thanks

Hi huys,
I’ve recently purchased the Sanyo 12x/4x/32x SCSI. It is the burner on which Plextor “based” their 12x/4x/32 SCSI. (They rebranded it) The difference is the front of the burner; on the Plextor it reads Plextor (duh) and it has a seperate play-button which the Sanyo doesn’t have. Furthermore they are identical, except for the price. The Sanyo costs about 50 US$ less than the Plextor. About the burner itself; it rocks ! Using Nero 4.0.8.3 I burned a 80min CD (filled to the max) in 7 minutes ! It’s a breeze to work with and everything works like it should. Shame about the lack of CloneCD support though…One advice; use only branded media (I use Philips Silver Premium) capable of 8x or higher or you’ll have one more coaster to put your drinks on ! Final thought; If you want to have the Plextor 12x/4x/32x save yourself the extra 50 US$ and buy the Sanyo !

I have a Matshita CW-7502 (4x recording SCSI-2) and it’s terrible, particulary for audio…


#19

Plexwriter 8/20
UltraPlex 40Max

As far as I know, all SCSI CD/CDR/CDRWs are either Fast SCSI-2 or Ultra SCSI-2 and use a 50-pin SCSI-2 Interface.

The only exception is the Plextor 40max UltraPlex Wide, which uses a 68-pin cable.
