SATA v PATA - DVD Writing Burn-off

Posted on Tuesday, December 06 2005 @ 00:05:54 CET by

We're starting to see DVD burners with SATA connections on the back. We put a SATA Plextor up against an established burner, a PATA 110D from Pioneer. Can Plextor strike a blow for legacy-free?

We've found that the Plextor was slower in almost every test - it's one thing to be faster and more expensive, but it's rather another to be more expensive and slower. The one thing the Plextor has going for it is the SATA connection. This connection is undoubtedly more stylish and practical than IDE, but does it justify worse performance and a higher price? We don't think so, unfortunately for Plextor. The Pioneer has great performance, and an astounding price - we wouldn't recommend you look anywhere else. Check out the full article over at Bit Tech.
