Greetings fellow Plextor fans, as the title suggests I have been using Benq burners for the last 3 years. 6 months ago my BenQ 1620(best burner ever made) died on me, so to replace it I purchased the New BEnq 1655DW. To make it short, I am not happy with it (average burner IMO) and my old 1620 trounced the thing.
I have decided since I am anal about the quality of my burns to move over to Plextor now that Plex is supposedly no longer a mess having to resort to using rebadged BEnq drives or teac etc…
I want quality Burns, I use only 2 media companies. Tayo Yuden and MCC004 verbatim. I need a burner that will produce good quality DL burns(like my 1620) as well as stellar SL. I want a burner that does real deep quality scans.
I am a bit worried about making the jump to Plex cause there drives are 3 times the cost of the competition, and when ever I come here to read the threads it’s one problem after another with these drives. I have always wanted to experience the Plex quality, however I wonder now if it’s all marketing considering that all the other big optical makers have more resource and money in which they have in many causes produced better burners then plex for 1/3 of the cost. My understanding is that it’s the Plex tools that set them apart from the others.
I in now way am claiming to be 100% correct here guys, this is just what the general consensus is. New BENq burners suck IMO, what else am I left with?
the PX760 PATA version here in Canada retails for $120Can ($99US)
ANy advice or words of confidence or any experience from long times user would very much be appreciated.
Question about my 1620 I always wonder if it was just giving me conservative, and not aggressive enough scans leading me to believe its 98%-99% score in Nero CD speed.
