I noticed on the Europe website there is no mention of the 708A. On the USA website, they do have it listed with Spec's but also, I see the words "End of Life" also with the 712A I see the same thing on the USA site.
Usually "End of Life" means they will not support it anymore. So maybe there's no more firmware updates for 712A and 708A...
Yes I saw the "End of Life" here:http://www.plextor.com/english/products/712A.htmhttp://www.plextor.com/english/products/708A.html
The European website (of course) still has the PX-708A listed. It has moved to the "Generations" section of their site, see here. PX-708A page here.
