Rather off-topic I know, but jadburner, what Plextor drive have you exactly got there? That firmware is much newer than any other PX-LB950SA firmware I’ve seen … can you do a dump please?

I wonder if your drive is Plextor’s iHBS212 equivalent of all those post July 2011 iHBS112 drives which now come with PLxx firmwares instead of CLxx firmwares. :confused:

I presume the drive is LightScribe enabled?

cvs - Yes, I’m pretty sure the drive is an iHBS212 equivalent. The exact model number is PX-LB950SA-26, with a manufacturing date of December 2011. The drive is LightScribe enabled. PM me and I’ll e-mail the firmware + EEPROM dumps.

Hello all,

I just bought this drive. I’m not knowledgeable enough to read the charts above. Does this drive perform reasonably well?

I haven’t done a lot of burns yet on this drive, but so far it looks to be on par with the WH12/BH12 series of drives from LG. Which means it should be a very good burner with the right media. So far I can say that it likes Falcons and INFOMER30s.

Nice to hear. What is the max burn speed with the Infomedias?

can this drive scan? is there any utilities to modify the settings or firmware?

hmm, slow DVD-video read speed

Only 8x, like the BH12/WH12 series.

The drive will not scan. I have not checked to see if MCSE works with this drive yet.

hmm, maybe i should return this thing, compared to my BDR-205 is starting to annoy me.

even the tray seems more wobbly and motor is whinny compared to the pioneer.
