PX-W4220T (20x4x2/2MB;SCSI)
PX-W8220T (20x8x2/4MB;SCSI)
PX-W8432T (32x8x4/2MB;IDE), also SCSI PX-W8432Ti/SW with 4MB
PX-W124TS (32x12x4/4MB;SCSI)
PX-W1210TA (32x12x10/2MB;IDE), also SCSI PX-W1210TS with 4MB
PX-W1610TA (40x16x10/2MB;IDE)
PX-W2410TA (40x24x10/4MB;IDE, also 'U' portable USB)
PX-S88TU (24x8x8/2MB;USB;portable)
PX-208U (24x8x8/2MB;USB2.0, reads DVDx8, portable)
PX-320A (40x20x10/2MB;IDE, reads DVDx12)
PX-W4012TA (40x40x12/4MB;IDE)
PX-W4824TA (48x48x24/4MB;IDE, TU model is external USB2.0)
PX-W5224TA (52x52x24/2MB;IDE)
PW-"Premium" (52x52x32/8MB;IDE)

For all units, 'C' indicates caddy, 'T' indicates tray, 'S' is SCSI, 'A'
is ATAPI, 'U' is USB.

All units are flash upgradeable. All units except the PX-R24CS support
packet writing.

Users having trouble with the PX-R412C should try turning synchronous
transfer off for that drive.

There appears to be an issue with the Plextor PX-320A and a SiS IDE chipset.
Using the DMA jumper to change the Plextor drive from UltraDMA to multi-word
DMA fixes the problem.
