I dont know whats wrong with this model?? Its so expensive in the market too… damn.
Well, with me:
I bought this plextor on EBAY. This guy in brockville, ontario posted the auction. SO, i knew i wanted to get my hands on the plextor… cuz, it was new according to him. And also, they were not a lot of people bidding for it.
So, the total came out to be… $73CAD, when i won it. So, not really that bad… compared to the retail price.
When i got the drive, unfortunately It died on me. I was not sure, if the drive got screwed during shipping, or it was not working originally.
Upon asking the seller, he said he didnt really get to test it as it was left as a store demo.
So, I am not sure here…too, cuz, the drive wasnt packed the best way. If the box would be shaked, there is a chance the drive would bump to its walls of the box. There was no foam or nothing. Just the drive wrapped in bubble wrep.
So, either the drive got messed during shipping, or that guy sold me a not working drive…
Well, luckily… the drive was manufactured in april 2005. So, it had warranty on it. I placed an RMA through memofix.com which is the canada side… RMA and warranty coverage facility.
I packed the drive pretty nicely and sent it through courier on a Wednesday. The drive got delivered to memofix on Thursday morning i guess.
Luckily, these guyz had a replacement drive in hand i guess. So, they shipped the replacement immediately through purolator.
I got the drive the next day, which is the friday… So, 2 days!! which was pretty sweet.
The new drive is working well…except that it has problems with generic media…
