This time, I will wait for the first quality reports from various users before buying one … don’t want to experience the same ‘hassle’ as i have had with the 712A …

Hi
If the news that came out yesterday can materialize, foreseen specifications for 716A (or what it will be…) should include DVD-RAM, as for 2005 the trend can be Super Multi drives…starting almost by the begining of the year. Have alook to:

Plextor already introduced 605A in Japan, and it offer DVD-RAM…but its slower than 712A and has no DL either.

I know RAM discs are popular in the far east… and not this side

For me I would like it, as: it works just like a HDD, can write 100 000 times and life time span is much more extended that all the other media

And hope it allows bitsetting…


#9

Definitely. Anybody know if Plextor is even considering bitsetting on any of their new drives?


#10

Why shouldn’t they? They enabled it for the PX-712A so why should they disable it for a new drive? This wouldn’t make sense in my opinion.


#11

I didn’t know they had enabled it for the PX-712A when I posted that.


#12

That’s news to me too!

It’s mentioned in the sticky Nero 6.3.1.25 & PX-712A -> Bitsetting thread on top of this forum. For now, bitsetting on the PX-712A only seems to work with the latest Nero version.


#14

The PX-716A will be available from the end of October at the many Plextor dealers.

Strange that the PX-716A will be released in Europe earlier than in Japan. Plextor’s Japanese site lists the release date as mid November.


#16

If the 716A will support DL, Bitsetting is a must to ensure compatibility … so I think we can safely assume that Plextor will add this feature (eventually by default via Firmware).
