Introducing Plextor's CD Combo Bundle:

As I pull up to that metallic looking (and sounding) speaker, I hear, "Can I take your order, sir?" "Yes," I respond, "I'll take the Plextor Combo." After a pause, the other end replies, "Do you want a SCSI card with that?" "Uh, sure. Oh, and throw in two audio cables, yeah, that's it, two audio cables." Creeping forward to the drive-up window, it hits me that I've just ordered the best CD-R combo you can buy. I hope they get my change right this time...

Need To "Super-Size" Your Current CD-R?

Tired of that 2X'er that's been doing nothing but spittin' out coasters? Do you stand in front of your 4X'er and shout "HURRY UP! I WANNA PLAY QUAKE!" Or, does time really equal $$$? If you answered yes to any of the above, Plextor's 8X writer and 40X reader is for you. And WHAT a combo it is.

Leading Edge Performance

The PLEXWRITER 8/20, Plextor's first high-performance 8X CD-Recordable drive, is a professional quality CD writer. With the PLEXWRITER 8/20, users get uncompromising dependability and performance.

The PLEXWRITER 8/20's Fast SCSI burst rates, low CPU utilization, huge 4MB buffer, internal cooling, vibration dampening, and synchronous data transfer all add up to increased efficiency and more reliable CD writing. Once a blank CD-R disc is recognized by the drive's circuitry, the PLEXWRITER 8/20 adjusts to provide the optimum laser power and length of burn for that particular media. Reliable CD-R writing is practically a guarantee with the PlexWriter.

Build in Plextor's CD-ROM reader performance and get two drives in one - a blazing recorder and great CD-ROM reader with throughput that zips past any sixteen speed CD-ROM drive. The PLEXWRITER 8/20 reads at a minimum of 12X and maximum of 20X with 170ms average random access times.

An exciting new feature is support for UDF writable file system implemented through packet writing. Software included in Plextor's retail kits supports packet writing enabled CD SneakerNet. Packet writing capability now makes CD-R the least expensive removable and shareable media available. Users can simply drag and drop a file to the PLEXWRITER 8/20 like a floppy and share it with their colleagues, then later continue adding files and sharing the same CD-R disc.

The PLEXWRITER 8/20 also supports Plextor's own hard drive disaster recovery software.* Users can record a copy of their hard drive, operating system, program
files, and data, directly to the PLEXWRITER 8/20. If the hard drive fails, users can use nearly any CD-ROM drive to boot from the backup disc, then restore not only the data, but also the entire system with original configuration for every program previously installed. There is no need to reconfigure the programs, even the user's desktop is restored to its original configuration.

For professional use, the PLEXWRITER 8/20 improves performance of most applications such as archiving or backing up data, images or video to CD-R, publishing data on CD, mastering new software programs, creating new multimedia titles, mixing and creating custom CD-Audio discs, CD duplication and file sharing.

* Available only in special retail kits
