Heh,

I am a 1st time Plextor buyer. I bought PX-716A. Mainly for reliable CD ripping. I did QA test as described on the EAC site and compared with several of my other drives. Well maybe this drive good error correction, but its error concealment is a joke.

Also if there are too many errors it drops the extraction. My other dirt cheap drives will recover. It took me 10 trials to create a test disk which does not make this drive choke so that I can complete a test on it.

Plextools 2.23 is so buggy that is should not even leave R&D. For example I cannot load any settings I saved. Only way to save the settings to set 'save on exit', but again I cannot load (or save) the settings into a config file. Certain settings are never saved such as 'Use 1st Session Only". It is a joke. Also just searching on HA I found that they had a lot of serious bugs in previous Plextools. Clearly they have no professional SW developers and they QA dept must be a joke. I work for a large test instrument manufacturer company and I can tell you that stuff like this would not even make its way to the QA dept let alone leaving it.

Sometimes I really wonder why everybody considers this company so highly. I can tell you that all this bad experience plus this corporate bullying convinced me that I stick to Lite-on. They have Q1 Q2 tests etc as well with kprobe. Plextor can stuff themselves. I have a middle-aged guy with some money to burn, but Plextor will not see any of that any more.

It would be kind of funny if a free linux version from independent developpers performs better then the real thing developped by plextor. Anyway, my previous experience with plextor didnt made me happy, and reading things like this doesnt really improve my opinion on that brand. I will never buy one again, but i already made this decision after my 2nd plextor died after 8 months tongue.gif
