Interesting to see that the AL is treated differently than the 'regular' 716.
Looks like 1.01 AL is the same as 1.08 for A/U/SA.
Who owns this drive? Two_Degrees?
Yuh, anyone own this drive yet? I'm getting impatient waiting months now for this drive to be available in the USA. It keeps getting pushed back every month! Guess I'll be getting the BENQ 1640 if it's released before the 716AL! LoL!!!!!
I called Plextor and recieved an e mail from the sales dept stating the drive would be ready the second week in July.
wlfranks, are you talking about Plextor Japan, Plextor Europe or Plextor America?
There is a bit of a review and some some scanning results of the 716AL with FW 1.01 over at CDBEST.NET:
