Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

Promising a peerless high-definition video experience and oodles of removable storage space, Blu-ray Disc (BD) burners immediately command attention. But while hardware and blank media prices remain relatively high, such tools open a new world to ho...
With the first Blu-ray drives appearing on the market, it was only fitting that perhaps the professionals manufacturer, Plextor, should launch a Blu-ray burner. Recent Plextor DVD burners had been very disappointing to say the least, from a manufactur...
Bottom line Plextor has traditionally been the drive manufacturer prefered by most professionals and not without reason. Plextor has always produced drives of quality, although their last efforts have fallen well short of the mark. So it was with great interest...
