Two weeks ago my second Plextor Premium died; this drive was only 14 months old. My first Plextor Premium also lasted just slightly more than a year. Great drives but where is the quality? I can honestly say that Plextor has changed. I have owned many of their drives for about a decade. Their old SCSI drives worked great and lasted 5 plus years on average for me.
Modern Plextor drives seem to die early and have many more problems than their "old" ones. I wish Plextor would go back to its quality days and start making excellent drives again. I am getting fed up with Plextor and its !@##$%^& :a
