716UF's TLA # @ Plexshop

Postby bruceg on Thu Dec 30, 2004 3:14 pm

Anyone knows what is the TLA number of 716UF @ Plextor Online Shop?

http://www.plextor.com/english/products/716uf.htm

I want to order it, but i don't think i'll order a 0101 :-?

And what's the deal with the colors units now? only color faceplates? what happened there? Colors dont sell?

thanks seanc,

Did you connect serial ata or use the provided adapter for serial ata to ata connection?

Did you receive a black face plate as well in the box?

thanks again....

You can update the firmware on it to version 1.03 which will essentially make it TLA 0103, but you cannot update the hardware revision, so it will never be the same as one with TLA 0202 or 0203.

I just received my 716A back from Plextor and they sent me TLA #0102, which is still problematic!

BTW, PX-716SA is back in stock at Buy.com for those interested!
