Hi Everyone.

Just thought I’d post this to let everyone know:

I bought a Plextor 712A a couple of months ago,it was easy to install and apart from an early Firmware conflict with Plextools,it works perfectly.

I keep reading posts from unhappy Plextor owners,but I’d recommend the 712A to everyone.

The only time I’ll consider a replacement is for a Dual Layer upgrade,and that will be another Plextor.

Keep up the good work Plextor.

happy New Year,

Ian

Did you burn any Verbatim 8x DVD-R media with it ??


#5

This is the drive I am hoping to get, But for a few dollars more I am considering the 16x drive, which doesnt looks too good at the moment.
Thanks

Thanks
But good luck to me finding this drives. The store where I wanted to buy from, told me it was discontinued. Also whats the latest TLA for the 12x drive. I dont need to burn my dvds at 16x, or 8x. 4x is good enough, I just want the quality. Plextor drive as to be better then other drives, from lg, benq, etc.

Latest possible TLA for the PX-712A is 0105. I’m not sure why you’d want a Plextor if you’re only going to burn at 4x. At such low speeds there really aren’t many differences in quality between the various drives IMO.
