Does any one know if or when the Plextor Premium 2 is coming out here in the uk ? as i would like to replace my ever trusty 2410A with one.
The official release-date for Europe was June. The drive is available in Germany. There is one Forum member who has one.
However Plextors On-Line-Shop in Japan (https://www.plextor-direct.net/cgi-bin/WebObjects/plextor) keeps posting delay notices for the next shipments of available drives (latest example: https://www.plextor-direct.net/cgi-bin/WebObjects/plextor.woa/2/wa/news?wosid=0YqADbNng1X1t82ZRGv0dg&key=137). Either Plextor is having a problem in production or this drive is a hot seller in Japan and they’re not being able to keep up with production. So supply might be limited also in Europe and the drive thus hard to find.
