The key feature of the Plextor PX-760A optical drive is its ability to burn DVD+R and DVD-R media at 18x speed. Like every other product from Plextor, it supports a number of exclusive technologies that ensure optimal burn quality for almost every medium, including those that are not in the firmware’s database. The drive’s hardware parameters provide an opportunity to make accurate copies of Audio CDs. The drive recorded most of the test media with high quality (it is just impossible to produce a good-quality disc in case the quality of the medium itself is low). The retail version of the Plextor PX-760A comes with good accessories and the PlexTools utility gives the user flexible control over the drive’s operation modes.
On the downside is the not-very-confident processing of errors and the traditionally high price. I guess it only makes sense to spend over $100 for an optical drive if you are indeed going to utilize all of its special features besides the standard ones. Otherwise, you can buy an optical drive from a less renowned firm and spend three times less money!
