I currently have a Plexwriter Premium & it’s been burning CD’s very well for the last 2 years or so. I need to buy a DVD writer & I always intended to get a Plextor … when I had the money.
However, the Aussie distributor has either gone bust or handed the license back & MT&A haven’t appointed another distributor … probably because no one wants it.
Therefore, anything Plextor is very hard to get & what I can find is very expensive compared to the LG, BenQ, Pioneer, etc. I’ve found 1 shop that still has a retail PX-716A for AU$260. Whereas, the others are selling for AU$90-150 depending on whether it’s OEM or Retail, etc.
I’m prepared to spend the extra money to buy quality & something that will last but is it really worth spending the extra AU$100+ to buy the PX-716A?
