Plextor is the latest DVD storage manufacturer to unveil a new high-speed internal DVD recorder that can write on both plus and minus discs. The firm’s new PX-712A can, claims Plextor, write at speeds of 12x for DVD plus and 8x for DVD minus. Turning these figures into burn times, Plextor states a 4.7GB DVD disk now only takes as little as six minutes to write. The PX-712A offers a claimed DVD-ROM read speed of 16x. Aimed at users who want to make back-ups of their favourite DVDs, photo albums or other data at high speeds and using either plus or minus discs, the PX-712A comes with a two year warranty and includes Plextor's VariRec technology which can be used to personalise sound recordings. On-board GigaRec technology meanwhile helps users record up to 1GB of data on a standard 99-minute CD disk. The PX-712A will be available across the region from the beginning of May at a recommended retail price of around $220. External and serial-ATA versions of the new drive will be announced later in the year.
