well my plex got lost in the post and Dabs have sent me an email to either refund or replace the 708UF.
Now when i ordered the 708 i had’t stumbled across this forum (now i live here ;-0 ) , so i did’t know all the problems with this burner. I ordered it purely on all the reviews on the net praising this burner. Reading all the posts here , i am no longer so sure. Yes i accept some people can screw up anythng much less a bit of kit like this , but SO many people getting it wrong ? Nooooooo
So my question to the gurus…if you had the chance to start over what would you do ? Order another 708 or go with the 2500 or the A07 and a liteon 166 Rom for ripping purposes ?
Is the 708 going to give me ANY advantage over the 2500 or A07 ? from what i read the 2500 is the bee’s nee’s for burn quality. I understand the best way to rip is from a ROM and the 166 is regarded as best for this . So why wold i want a 708a ? Am i missing anything i should be aware of? is the plex worth the money ? is the 708 a lemon in general or can it give me some huge advantage ?
Lastly…Most imporrtant to me is being able to play back burnt DVD’s in as many players as possible. Next ( actually just as important) is backing up my CD collection . Games are interesting but i am not really bothering with PSX stuff anymore. Ripping speed is medium level importance but not critical and burning speed is of little consequence as i prefer a burn that will play then trying to get it done in 10 mins and having a coaster.
So taking all that into account what would YOU do ?
Any replies will be highly appreciated.
