Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Plextor PlexWriter 48x24x48 CD-RW - Plextor PlexWriter 48x24x48 CD-RW

Mikhailtech posts a review on the kick ass Plextor PlexWriter 48x24x48 CD-RW! Man, it's so nice...

In the center of the front panel, below the tray, there's the CDRW Ultra Speed logo, while near the left edge you'll see the BPRec stating that the drive is using Sanyo's BURN-Proof technology. There's only one LED with double function like on all other Plextor drives. When the LED is green, it means there's a disc in drive and when the LED is orange the drive is either reading or writing the disc. I've noticed there are two shades on orange, one for reading and one for writing, and the LED blinks intermittently depending on how fast the writing speed is. Unlike the previous Plextor drives, the emergency eject has been moved closer to the eject button; Plextor has redesigned the front panel just for this drive. A new feature is the reinforced front panel. Because the drive can read and write at 48X speed and there have been reports of poorly calibrated discs that explode at such high speeds, Plextor has designed a thicker and more robust front panel so pieces of the exploding discs, if such a thing should occur, do not exit the drive and hurt anyone.
