How are the NEC drives in comparison to the Sony’s?

I seems odd that Plextor would just rebrand an NEC drive with no value-add.

im a plextor fan my self,soo and understand your opinion

normaly sanyo produce drives for plextor, but this one i read in a newsgr. on the other hand sanyo produces dual drives for sony…

??:confused:

upps

normaly sanyo produce drives for plextor, but NOT this one i read in a newsgr. on the other hand sanyo produces dual drives for sony…

So who is really making the Sony drives now? I heard they were using Ricoh mech in their earlier drives but the u500A was supposed to be Sony’s mech. So you are telling me its Sanyo’s?

I’m pretty bummed that Plextor is buying someone elses entire drive. I can understand if you have to buy parts of it for your drive and then do your own electronics and firmware etc… but to just rebrand an NEC drive as a plextor kind of sucks.

My PX-504A just got delivered today… now I’m not as excited to get home and hook it up

:frowning:

well it might be that plextor did som modifications and stuf but, i havent heard about that, i think the rioch drive was for an earlyer model…

Yea… their entry models were Ricoh (the ones that I think sucked really bad too).

So is it confirmed that Sanyo is making the Sony 500 Drives?

well thats what i read in news group, but havent got other knowlege about that…
