Bij Trainwrecker is een review te vinden van de Plextor PlexWriter 12/10/32A. Deze IDE CD-fikker kan naast het schrijven op 12 speed, het herschrijven op 10 speed en het lezen op 32 speed beroep doen op BurnProof technologie, iets wat buffer underrun errors tot het verleden laat behoren. Deze feature blijkt bijzonder goed te werken, om deze reden en om de hoge schrijf snelheden is de reviewer erg tevreden met dit apparaat :
Plextor has claimed, thanks to the PlexWriter's BURN-Proof feature, that you can peform some simple tasks on you machine while burning a CD. Plextor mentions "sending email, or Web surfing," which aren't exactly high CPU utilitization tasks, but this is a far cry from "shut down all programs that may be running in the background" to help prevent buffer underruns. We copied approximately 500 MB of data over a network, while surfing the web and downloading an extremely large file (Window 2000 SP1), without a hitch. The fact that we connect to the Internet via our LAN, and a large amount of data was moving across the network while we recorded from it, had no ill effect.
As surfing the Web and downloading files are not the most resource-intensive processes, we decided to up the ante. We did a CD to CD data tranfer while running SYSmark2000, an application-based benchmark, and downloading a 16 MB file. Once again, the recording session was error-free. Keep in mind that we were looking for trouble, and it was remarkable that we didn't find any. You'll probably want to go a little easier on your drive, and firing up Quake3 while burning a CD is an awful idea. Clearly, however, with BURN-Proof enabled, you can get away with a lot more than you could in the recent past.
