Thanks, I spent a bit of time today reading and see that it looks like Plextor are not going away just scaling down.
Also the info on the 760 vs 755 is very interesting (thanks hwp) as it is most of the things that I do not use, I dont use DL disks, or have not had to so far, and I am happy running at the best speed over just going as fast as it can.
I am very happy with my LG/Lite0n combo, but the NEC, I am not happy with, and have moved it to another computer that just needed a CD drive and am using that Asus drive in my new box, and I would need to see something 'very' good from them to get another. The plan was just to try to have a one box solution, with the added abilities that the Plextor would bring. I could always add another drive at a later date to get anything covered that could be lacking.
