"Plextor is one of the first, if not the very first company to market with
the latest installment to the speed race. Today, we've got the loaded
PX-712A on the bench. This drive claims more features than a swiss-army
knife, and some of the fastest DVD±RW burning on the planet with it's 12x
DVD+R capability. It burns DVD-R's at 8x, DVD±RW's at 4x, and reads
DVD-ROM's at up to 16x. It also boasts to be a 48x24x48x CDRW drive; which
is currently holds the speed record as far as DVD±RW burners go."
