im happy with all of mine and none have let me down at all (PX-708UF, two PX-716As, PX-Premium and PX-M402U Video Converter)… if you are happy with yours (Plextor OR NOT), then i’m happy for you. why do people always have to argue about this and why can’t people be happy for others regardless of whether they choose Plextor or not? i also really dislike those who make broad-sweeping generalizations about a particular brand of burner having never used one extensively.
it’s been said many times (both in this thread and others) that Plextors have certain features/quality that make them worth the price for some people…for others that may not be the case. there is no definitive answer to the question posed in this thread and if one claims that there is, i wouldn’t believe anything he/she/they ever said.
i am, however, disappointed by some aspects of Plextor - the quality of their customer service IN THE USA, the shitty attitude they have towards 3rd-party developed software that utilizes some of the features (namely CD/DVD Speed and PxScan/PxLinux) and the seeming lack of communication with some of their most loyal customers.
every single brand of drive has its pros and cons (price included) and THAT is a FACT.
