it was a 0202 but the firmware was upgraded to 1.06
i’ve only had it 4 months and now it won’t burn dvd-r. i think it has problems calibrating the laser.
i used to buy cheap optical drives and only one of them has ever broken down(after 2 years), but i thought i would spend more on a plextor and get some real good quality burns.
i can’t say i was blown away by it’s quality (i didn’t even overspeed the media. if it was x8 i burned it at that, i was willing to wait for good quality burns)
now i don’t have a burner as i’m waiting for a replacement, i hope it is a newer hardware revision. i was a little suspicious at the ease of getting a replacement, they didn’t ask me to try anything to fix my problem, it was like ‘okay here is another guy with the same problem. give him a new drive’ (is it just me or does anybody else feel like this?)
anyway i hope the replacement is a lot better or plextor will lose a customer to benq or pioneer.
by the way does anybody know if my warranty will start again when i get my new drive or will i have lost 4 months?
thanks for reading my moans
