Production of 24x CD-R drives is ramping up and Plextor has kicked in with a CD-RW which offers: 24x CD-R; 10x CD-RW, and 40x CD-read.

It's an internal drive with E-IDE interface.

Plextor isn't the first with this, and Ricoh says it has had 1-24x CD-R's available since the beginning of May, included in its MP7200A-DP 20x 10x 32 CD-RW drive kit.

The PlexWriter drive, snappily known as the 24/10/40A, comes with 'PoweRec-II technology' and features 'BURN-Proof technology' with 'Zone-CLV servo positioning' - all of which is meant to ensure you're don't have a CD coaster production factory on your hands. You can read more about the claims for these technologies on the Plextor press release, linked to below.

But they reckon you can CD-R an entire 74-minute compact disc in just under four minutes (233 seconds).

The drive has got a suggested $289 retail price so you should be able to pick it up cheaper than that.
