Plextor stopped making their own drives many years ago. They sell rebadged drives now, mostly Lite-on clones (though at least one of their blu ray drives was a Pioneer).
If you’re going to buy a Lite-on, you might as well pay Lite-on prices.[/QUOTE]
Kerry56, you are a knowledgeable person, but you better talk to Dee, she wrote a review on my Plextor BDRW in March of 2010. I lived in Fremont, CA where they have a Manufacturing Plant. I have been buying Plextor’s going way back into the 1990’s. Lite-On is a different Company, they can’t even touch Plextor. I only buy and install the best Hardware, and Plextor is high on my list.
