Plextor PX-716A Question

#1

Hi!
I decided to buy PX-716A after reading some reviews about it, because it seems great and i’m also delighted with my 2 years old PX-W4824A recorder. But there’s just one little thing that still bothers me - i’d like to know is there any indication that plextor will soon present any new model, or they’re just goin’ to work on upgrading PX-716A with new firmwares?? i ask this because i don’t wont to buy it and then have the old model after only a month or so!
Thank you for any kind of information (advices are also welcomed)!

I don’t think there will be a new model too soon. It wouldn’t make any sense to bring out another faster model without having outsourced this one.


#3

The new firmware already ups the speed of DL to 6x. Which is decent compared to having to buy a new one. Hopefully future updates will bump the +R and -R up a little too.

Bump the +R and -R up to what exactly? The only thing they could possibly do is implement a P-CAV strategy at 16x like the LG GSA-4163B uses…
