Plextor Corp.'s multiformat DVD writers PX-708A hits a record 8x for DVD+ R and a more pedestrian 4x for DVD+ RW and DVD-R (and 2x for DVD-RW). The lucky local distributor with this hot product is BBF, which expects it to be priced under $800. But that's far from the last word in laser-writing, as Philips intends to unveil a 16x DVD+ R drive before the year is out.
