Well, after reading all of the incredible enthusuastic reviews on the net about the Plextor PX-708A, saying how incredibly fast it was, how error-proof, blahdey blah I then find this forum and decide to have a look-see how people are faring with theirs. Lo and behold I see a mass of people claiming defective drives, scratched media, slow burn speeds etc etc, and not only that but that it’s a common thing among Plextor PX-708A drives!
After paying Â£113 for mine which has yet to arrive, i’m seriously considering getting a refund and buying another drive in the hope of avoiding these troubles.
Now, i’ve been into computers for a long time and know there’s a chance that ANY part or manufacturer can produce defective parts, and I know support forums are usually only populated by people with problems, not praise, but what i’ve been rading here has seruiously put me off.
Should I get refund and get a cheaper 8x drive? If so, which one should I get, and which one is known for good write speeds and importantly no problems?
Thanks in advance, and sorry for the rather long post.
