I now have my fourth PX-716SA drive. It has not been installed yet! It is a TLA #0305 March 2005 drive, like the last drive, but about 1000 or so drives newer (according to the serial #). This new drive has another difference from my other drives in its packaging. Once again, the difference is in the Plextor accessories box. This drive has the manual (the older October 2004 manual), but doesn't include an MCC004 Verbatim 16X DVD+R disc. Instead, this drive has something cooler: a Plextor branded 8X DVD+R YUDEN T02 disc. Very cool--a genuine TY DVD+R 8X disc in a standard (thick) jewel case. It looks much nicer (to my eyes) than the Fuji branded YUDEN T02 8X DVD+R discs. I wonder if Plextor has figured out that the TYT02 media is better than the MCC004 media, despite its lower rated speed? It was probably because the factory was out of MCC004 that week when this drive was packaged. I hope this drive is a winner--I will install it tomorrow.
