Ga'ash Soffer van Voodoo Extreme heeft een review van de PlexWriter 8/4/32A neer gemikt. Dit is de Plextor's eerste EIDE CD Rewriter en staat de laatste tijd sterk in de belangstelling. De prestaties van de drive zijn volgens Ga'ash erg goed, mede vanwege de erg grote buffer van 4Mb:
The PlexWriter 8/4/32 is an excellent product when it comes to speed, reliability, and quality. The software bundle is great, the drive performed well "under pressure" [with background tasks], and the read speed isn't disappointing. The drive costs well under $250 (lowest I've seen is $223) at the time of this writing. Surprisingly, this high quality drive is also one of the lowest priced 8x write drives on the market. All in all, the PlexWriter is an excellent drive with an excellent price. If you're into burning CDs, the PlexWriter is a hands down winner. For the casual user who may want to copy a CD or two every month or so may want to consider a slower and less expensive drive. 2x recorders are available for near $120!
