It already has been posted here on the forum but I have mailed Plextor (Europe) myself. It’s sad to hear that there are not making a firmware upgrade for the PX712 for supporting dual layer.
I am a great fan of Plextor but I don’t like how they are doing their market strategy. Pioneer just released it’s 2 gen DL-drive, while Plextor hasn’t one DL-drive on the market today I also asked when they will bring out a drive that supports DL but he didn’t answer this question. It’s like they are avoiding those questions. Anyway I was planning on buying a new DVD-RW but I really would have a Plextor. I am ceriously waiting for Plextor to bring out a DL-drive.
I want to buy the PX712 but DL seems to be usefull in the future.
So all I can do is to wait. I’m hoping many problems will be fixed with the firmware upgrade end this month. Hope plextor keeps his word on that.
They can say what they want, but not one drive can beat Plextor!!!
