Will there be any tests on the new Plextor drive?
« on: October 18, 2006, 04:14:49 PM »
I saw on Plextor's web site the they have a new blu-ray drive coming out.  The PX-B900A.  Will there be any tests on it in the near future??

We are working on acquiring a review sample of this drive, but availability is scarce and the price is very high.  This unit will likely retail for around $1000USD as it is one of the fastest drives around that reads and writes CDs and DVDs as well.  Some early generation Blu-Ray drives would not recognize CD media.  We'll keep you posted when we get our sample.  It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when.  I talked with a Plextor rep late last week to confirm.

Thanks for your interest!
