seems to be the same as 716 just half the buffer - 4mb versus 8mb.

anyone in china or have access to chinese models?

The site also indicates DVD+RW writing speed reduced to 4X for the PX-714A, as well as no support for Plextool Professional Q-Check features. Included accessories are also reduced (no specifics though).

Overall, PX-714A is a cost-reduced version of PX-716A.

No support for DVD-R DL & 6x DVD-RW, just 4x. Can be found at just under US$100 in the Chinese market.

Weird, that’s the first I’ve ever heard of this drive, not sure it’s really necessary. Seems like it would erode some of Plextor’s profitability.


#5

Good price though. :sad:

Dug out this in their Chinese forum.

No Plextor logo on the front bezel. :bigsmile: Also some marks like CE missing on PX-714A.

Maybe it can be modded into a real 716 and then it will kick high :stuck_out_tongue:


#9

Unlikely if its missing cache, the firmware will fail unless its written to detect the size, I doubt it though.

update

Plextools can be used after some hack/crack
