[QUOTE=Halcyon;2493183]Are they really getting this bad at support, or is it just a mere delay?[/QUOTE]
If its a delay, then its a pretty long one, since clearly they have the firmware for a while now given that the new drives are shipped with it. Pioneer already released fw 1.04 a while back now …
The point is that the firmware exists, they have it, but they clearly aren’t very bothered to release it. Its a simple enough thing to do … minimal effort, but it also requires someone to care / be interested to do it.
Hopefully if enough people are going to pester them with firmware requests and with the spectrum of negative publicity on forums, they’ll finally bother to release it.
Further, does this fw.1.04 correspond to a particular Pioneer FW version, or is it an inhouse Plextor version?
Based on past examples of Plextor Pioneer rebadges, I bet the only difference would be the ID string and a few CRC bits …
[QUOTE=Halcyon;2493183]I also have B940SA with fw 1.03 as Pioneer was not available anywhere here locally anymore (EU).[/QUOTE]
Same here! Otherwise I would not have bought a Plextor rebadge.
