Are you sure about this new 712 drive? I know the 708 won't do it because it doesn't have varirec. But this newest one appears to have varirec along with gigarec, so couldn't it do the same as the Premium? I saw in the other thread about this that you say plextor prevents you from using this feature?
I guess I just don't understand how they could prevent you, if the drive has the feature, how is it you can't use it? If you could elaborate at all that would be nice.
I figured they would come out with it on some new drives. Maybe it just took them a bit longer to implement varirec to the DVD burner series. I would bet Liteon or some other company will soon have some kind of varirec technology very soon also.
They can't let people think Plextor out did them, now can they?
