My Pioneer 107 has finally died (constant Power Calibration errors), won't read some pre-burnt DVDs etc etc. Not keen on 109, and new NEC 3540 doesn't seem to come out that well.. so was considering paying a bit more and going for a Plextor.
Would I be right in thinking that if I don't want D/L a 712 - would be a better option than a 716 - quality wise ?
The 712 is around 15 pounds cheaper here in the UK.
Also - I have P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard - I have 2 drives in SATA RAID 0 on the 2 main SATA connections - could I use the 712SA on one of the SATA connections for the Promise controller - or is the Promise controller RAID only ? I've checked through the manual and it's not clear one way or the other.
Thanks for any help,
