I emailed Plextor Sales yesterday regarding this and the wrote:

Plextor will release its Dual Layer DVD burner sometime next month, however, it will feature a standard EIDE interface (ATAPI) and the SATA version will most likely follow a few weeks later.

Thank you,

Plextor Sales

If it doesn't support 8x DVD+RWs, 6x DVD-RWs, and DVD-R9 it will be quickly out-shined by the Pioneer DVR-109 :wink:

Yeah, wait for the official specs. If I had $1 for every time "insider info" like this was wrong, I'd...

...well I'd have a nice pile of money. :P

I can't imagine Plextor is going to be happy that this info has been leaked either. Especially if its wrong like it tends to be.

Well it looks like Plextor is going to remain in the North American market after all!

Good news indeed!
