The PX-712SA DVD±R/RW CD-R/RW 8-in-1 internal Serial

ATA drive from Plextor offers all the advantages of our legendary CD-RW drives along with dual format capabilities.

For years, Plextor ® has been the most trusted name in CD drives for professional use. Now, you too can choose from our award-winning drives which offer exceptional performance, best quality recording at the fastest speeds, reliability and ease-of-use.

Easy to install

With an Serial ATA interface and plug and play compatibility, the PX-712 SA is a snap to install and use. The PX-712 SA can be installed horizontally or vertically.

Versatility of 2 DVD formats and

8 drives in one

The Plextor PX712SA delivers the fastest performance in dual formats: 12X DVD+R write, 8X DVD-R write,

4X DVD+RW rewrite, 4X DVD-RW rewrite and

16X DVD-ROM. In addition to recording, rewriting and reading DVD discs in dual formats, the PX-712SA supports 48X CD-R write, 24X CD-RW rewrite and

48X CD-ROM read speeds. All in one drive. Create a

4.7 GB disc on DVD media in about 6 minutes.

Get the best of both worlds

With dual formats in one single drive, you won’t have to worry about compatibility with either format. Take advantage of both formats in this high performance drive and start burning DVDs or CDs to share with friends and family. The Plextor PX-712 SA is the only DVD burner you need that can write both plus and minus formats.

Performance you can rely on

The PX-712 SA has a unique technology and feature combination that offers unparalleled reliability.

Lossless linking technology enables users to perform basic editing tasks directly on the DVD disc.

There is no need to reload DVD content back to a PC to make minor changes, and no need to re-burn an entire DVD after making small edits.

Buffer Underrun Proof technology prevents buffer underrun errors which allows you to multi-task during a recording session.

GigaRec ™ allows high capacity storage of up to

900 MB on a 700 MB CD-R disc. With this advanced feature, you can increase the maximum writing capacity up to 30%.*

Q-Check ™ checks and reports written disc quality –

C1/C2, track and focus errors.*

SecuRec ™ offers password protection for your CD-R disc and other valuable data.*

VariRec ™ provides users with unprecedented control over the burn process.*

SilentMode ™ enables users to vary tray load/unload speed, spin up/down speed and write/read speeds.*

PoweRec ™ (Plextor Optimized Writing Error

Reduction Control) technology is a sophisticated write strategy providing superior quality recording at maximum speed for your chosen media.

Black disc tray minimizes jitter and reduces C1 error rates. Optimized PCB circuits near the power supply decrease noise and provide clean power to the drive, improving both jitter and deviation levels.

For all your applications

You won’t find a better DVD recordable drive to create, edit and share customized DVDs and CDs with friends and family using video, photo, audio and data. Capture, archive, organize and personalize your home movies and photos on DVD, VCD, mini DVD and SVCD. Create photo slide shows, complete with transitions and music. Burn your photos to Video CD to play on most DVD players. You can also back up and archive 4.7 GB on a single-sided recordable

DVD disc or create photo albums for viewing with DVD players and much more.
