Plextor has always insured a perfect burn with its PlexWriter lines and to help it keep that guarantee, it has implemented a mechanism to keep the internals of the drive steady while the CD is spinning.
Four rubber stabilizers hold t he inside of the drive from the case.
If you open up the drive and look inside -- voiding your warranty -- you will find that the entire core of the writer is held up using rubber stabilizers. For each rubber pole (pictured above), there is one below lifting up the drove off the casing. This means the entire drive is suspended within itself to absorb any shock that the drive may encounter as well as dampen the vibration caused by the spindle in the middle.
If you look at the metal lid of the drive on the top left, you’ll immediately conclude that this drive is a repackaged 12/10/32S Internal.
Also to help the drive burn perfect discs is the inclusion of BURNProof technology. If you don’t know what it is, jump over to my article on how BURNProof works.
