Right now i have a Toshiba SD-M1802 and though it seems to be a good reader (from what i’ve read and my own experience) it also has some annoying drawbacks, such as great virations at high speed and a constant motor noise (i don’t mean the kind of motor noise that is produced by high RPMs, but some king of very high pitched sound that seems quite independent of the RPMs and only stops when the drive stops). Another annoying thing is that i have a black case, and the fact that only the bezel of the drive is black, and not the tray, kinda annoys me.
I’ve tried to gather some info about the PX-116 DVD reader, but i’ve not been able to find some reliable answers to some questions :
- is the drive compatible with the plextools. I own 2 plextor burners and i love this software. The ability to control the drive’s speed with plextools is vital to me
[ul]as i said before i find that a black bezel drive with a beige tray is womewhat annoying, so what’s the color of the PX-116’s tray ?
- is the drive subject to nasty vibrations (such as the tosh when it reads CDs at high RPM) or is it smooth like the Plextor burners
Last, but not least, according to what i’ve read, there were 3 versions of the PX-116, the first and second being rebadges of pioneer units. Is that right, and is it still right with the third version of the drive ?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
