Hello all…

Need some Info about the Drive Plextor PX-B950UE
Is it a good drive, is it possible to make CD,DVD and BluRay Scans?

It`s sold out everywhere - i can get a new one for 169€
Should i buy it , or leave it?

What about the Quality of the drive?

It’s a very good drive - and yes, if you need BD-R disc quality scanning, then this drive is the best possible choice. The price is quite high, though…

Thank you very much for your Answer.

Inside the Box - Is it a LiteOn 112 or a LiteON 312 ?

What about CD/DVD scanning? Good Scanner too?

Like most LiteOn drives released since 2005, it is good for DVD scanning, but not the best for CD scanning.

Whether it is 112 or 312 depends on the age of the drive you get. A very new drive would likely be 312, while older would be 112. I do not think there is a big difference in quality between the two.

Seriously, I wouldn’t buy it for that price, you’d be better of getting an OEM LiteOn DH12B2SH and crossflash it to a Plextor PX-B950SA, then put it in an external USB enclosure if you really need that. Should be a lot cheaper.
