Time after Time!

STReport's Editor's Choice Blue Ribbon Award Winner 2003-2004

Plextor has, over the years, proven to me that their main concern is engineering quality... I've used Plextor Drives for over five years now and have yet to have a single problem with any of them.  No, this is not a history lesson it is a testimonial from me. I've become so accustomed to enjoying high quality and superb performance from Plextor drives that its a given at this time.  Truly, the Rolls Royce of DVD/CD Burners.

I recently installed the PX-708a product and believe this.... it was up and running in less than 15 minutes.  I already had Nero 6 Ultra Edition installed and Nero saw the Plextor in a heartbeat. The drive runs silent, no loud whirring, no tray grinding, no clicks, bumps or anything.  I've burned at least 20 CD's and 10 DVD's.. not a single mishap.

Plextor delivers top notch goods.... period!

There is no doubt in my mind when I tell you, "If you want the best get a Plextor!"  What more can I say?  I have had other brands of drives here for evaluation and they are all a far cry from the quality of workmanship, design and circuitry Plextor offers in all its products. I could go on and on but the truth is, I am not going to bore you with nonsense statistics, instead, I'll say it again..... I have never been disappointed by any Plextor product.  You want the best?  Get a Plextor!
