have you seen the updates, they do minimum updates and call that a firmware update. Yet leaving out critical support
the 1.07 update shouldn't have even been released that was a minio update to a database that should have been there in the first placee 106a would of been a suitable update name since its not enough changes for a full build.
the plextor 716 is still missing mt, better cdc drw support, dvd ram, and a complete dvd rw-/rw+ support database.
(assumming you go with the official updates)
the 716 is capable of all of this its plextor who is playing games with their paying customers. I for one will not buy a plextor drive again after the second grade experience they give. Their products cost double and offer limited differences from its compeditors. What makes them even worse is that their plexor px drive needs to be bought if you'd like the features.
One question comes to mind; Is this a company who seems to care about their customers, or just another company taken in by the North American way of living and charging customers up the ass?
