Plextor 24/10/40 IDE

After all this testing its time to weight the good and the bad points of this burner, if we can even speak of bad points:


  • Nero Burning Rom V5.5
  • Complete package
  • Burn Proof
  • PowerrecII
  • Good reader
  • Excellent writer
  • Back-up of protected CD’s
  • Good DAE extraction
  • 4 MB data buffer


  • Seektimes could be a little bit better
  • The fact that the retail version comes with firmware V1.00
  • A firmware upgrade is required to benefit of all features to V1.02
  • Price compared to competition

Total score: 96.5%

Plextor is the absolute king of all writers at the moment. Plextor has done it again combining all those beautiful tweaks and extra’s with a very reliable performance and excellent service and support.

For the user who expects the maximum from his drive there is only one solution: buy this Plextor!
