Just how yellow is your Plextor LED in yellow mode? I can’t distinguish it from green mode. It’s so close, that I can’t tell that it’s yellow when it doesn’t change between yellow and green all the time. Afik I don’t have color blindness.
It is rather subtle, but there is a difference.
Totally, I even think that other Plextors I have seen were more clearly yellow. Maybe there’s a variation in those multi-color LEDs.
Or my Plextor gives green and yellow signal when it should give yellow or gives read and rest signal. I hope it’s not a defect. But that’s really unlikely.
I have made the same observation. Both my 708 and 716 had bigger difference in color between green and yellow LED than 760.
The 716 a bigger difference? Man, that is already damn close to each other. If 760 is even closer, I don’t understand why they just don’t go for blue, red and green.
Blue, Red and Green? That would look horrible when they cycle through those to indicate operation of AS
Instead of PoweRec this would be the “FunkyRec” function.
I’d really favour FunkyRec over crawling in front of the LED, shadow it with my hand and to examine closely to be sure if it’s green or yellow
Even if it is not that drastic, you get the point.
my 760A is more orange-ish
You could open it and solder a different LED to the board.
