I have recently purchased a PX716A (TLA 0203; immediately updated with 1.04u) for 120 â‚¬; wich is the double of majority of his concurrents.
i've chosen that unit because of the +- Dual layer capability and the-apparently- good quality of the plextor drives.
But the burns are catastrophic!!!!
here an exemple of a MCC04 (verbatim 16x) burned at 12x (PowerRec don't let me burn at 16X!).
at this time; i hesitate to RMA the drive (and pay shipping....).
maybe i wait for a new hardware revision; hopping that is the solution for all of our problem.
but when i think i can just buy a NEC or anything else for half the price and get MUCH MUCH better burn; i feel a pain in the ass :a :a
