I'm not happy--in fact, I'm a little bit P.O.'d :a :a :a right now, since my PX-716 can't burn CDs above 16X.
I feel like I'm pitching my drive into the RMA lottery when I return it--will the next unit burn DVDs as well as this one or not? Will it have problems with CDs just like this one?
Right now, I'm relying on my Benq 1620 for CDs, biding my time for the next h/w rev, since the "no flash backwards" statement on Plextor Europe's site makes me think they're making some fundamental hardware change--but will I even be able to get one of these in the RMA process? Brand "diversity" saved my butt this time.
