Question about using two Plextors

vbimport

#1

The Plextor manual recommends keeping the drive as a Master. What kind of performance drop is there by having 2 Plextors with one Master and the other as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel?


#2

Everything works fine for me with PX-716A as master and Plex Premium as slave. I’ve no performance problems!


#3

It’s recommended but this doesn’t mean you can’t have two Plextor drives on the same channel. In most cases it won’t be a problem to have two on one IDE channel. Problems can occur but mostly when the Plextor is slave to a device that doesn’t (or supports a lower) UDMA mode.

I have my 716a as Master and my 708a as slave and havent had any problems.


#5

I have the same configuration PX-716A as Master PX- Premium as Slave and works perfect for me


#6

I also have 716A as master and Premium as slave on one channel: no problems.
