so are these rebrands? it seems a lot of companies are just cramming hitachi drives in a pretty shell and calling it their own. gotta say… i’ve had some seriously bad luck with hitachi drives

So Plextor history 101… Late 90s… Plextor makes unquestionably the best CD writers on the market. Early 2000… DVD comes out and instead of Plextor trying to dominate the DVD market, they rebadge NEC drives. 2005… Plextor attempts to dilute themselves and jumps into the Hard Drive market (with rebadged drives I’m sure).
