    I'm thinking of ordering the PX-W2410TA/SW Plextor CD-RW. I found it on pricewatch for $131.00.

    Anyways, I was wondering how this drive performs in XP? Does anyone have experience with it? Will it work in xp fine?

    Here's the link:

    Let me know!

    I just bought one for my new XP system. I haven't used it that much. I just tested the CD-rom portion and burned a test CD-RW. I can tell you this. This sucker is loud, very loud. It also vibrates quite a bit due the fast spindle speed (I assume). I have an Antec case that uses locking drive rails. I had to put some electrical tape on the rail to reduce the buzzing caused by the vibration. I'll only buy a Plextor CD-R(W). But this is not the CD-Rom for audio CD playback because of the noise. Again, I didn't play with it that much so there may be some settings that can take care of this.

    Noise isn't really a factor anyways, I have 4 fans on my case, and a huge ass cpu fan.

    Dont buy anything else but plextor they are the best money can buy.

    I have bought a few different cdrw, drives over the years and nothing comes close on performance,

    Plextor will write at full speed i never had a coaster yet with any of my plextor drives.

    I wouldnt ever consider buying anything else.

    I have the drive and absolutely love it, as for sfj99, My plextor is loud for a second when it first spins up to full speed, but other then that it sounds just the same as my other cd/dvd drives and there is no excessive vibration :)

    Plextor A+++

    I own three Plextors and love them. One is an older unit without "burn-proof" but it's still great. Only problem I've found is the GREAT "Plextor Manager 2000" software with Disk-Dupe doesn't work in XP. Their web site said to not use this software in XP and tells you to use Roxio's ECDC 5 Platinum----I wish you luck with this. If all else fails use Nero. Plextor is the very best!!!!
