Differences between Plextor 755 and 760 models?

Given all the discussion about whether a drive is a “real” Plextor drive, or rebranded, and which has professional features versus mainstream, etc. etc.

… is there anyone who can provide a list features that differ between the 755 and 760 models? Why would one want one drive over another, given possible rebrandings, features differences, suspected longevity based on build quality, upgradeability, etc.?

The two drives are nearly identical. Both are Plextor design and build. The 755 is 16x, the 760 is 18x. Same chipset, same features. Main difference is in models offered. In the US, they never announced the 755A, and just now announced the 755 SATA. They did announce the 760, so it looks like they are marketing selected models, not all that are available. Their history has been external models and SATA a few months after the ATAPI, so if that follows, a 760UF or 755UF (probably 755 since most USB/Firewire can’t hit 18x) and later, the 760SA.

The only real difference between the 755 and 760 is 2x…

Both the 755 and 760 are ‘real deal plextors’, to compare the both just have a look at here http://www.plextor.be/products/all/optical_drives.asp?choice=Opticals

I was told by plextor that the laser will not adjust as will the 760

The 760 has over the 755:

18x ±R SL over 16x writing
8x -R DL over 6x writing
16x DVD-DL-ROM over 12x reading

The PX-760A/PX-760SA also features 6X writing to DVD-R DL only, not 8X.

I’m pretty sure the only difference between the 755 and 760 is 16X vs. 18X DVD+/-R writing.

in addition the 760’s laser will adjust, the 755 will not.

All drives feature optimal power calibration (OPC). Both the 755 and 760 support PowerRec also. No differences there.

Yes, but realizing that laser adjustments are different than calibration of power. And btw…ImgBurn’s current version released a couple days ago now has OPC on by default.
