Yes, i agree with the fact that we can’t always have the recent hardware because if we wait for the next revision or model we won’t buy anything.
Nevertheless it would be very interesant to see what were the changes from this TLA#… It sure would give us a picture of the Plextor’s idea of the drive. For instance, if their were anychenges of the chipset used, on the DACs on the power regulators…
from the datasheets of this parts we could see if ther were replaced or not by other with lower specs (in that case bad for plextor) or if ther were replaced by better parts.
From some pictures the TLA#0202 has the Sanyo chipset LC897492FL YH4HN 4JGBG among others LSI parts. Has this been an update from TLA#0000?
For the people that are reviewing and that have access to the drives (and can open them ) it would be a positive aspect of the review (if the models beeing reviewed had suffered various hardware versions).
ItÂ´s only an idea.
Happy new year for everyone and please don’t forget our brothers in Asia that are suffering !
