I feel a little put-off myself. The stuf on the 716 sounds really advanced but as a local tv progam asks, "Does it work?"
I think the 716 should justly face a closer look before I spend my money on my 2nd Plextor drive.
Ian, I shouldn't try and put work on someone elses plate but this would be a good drive come review time to get some real diversity and comprehensiveness as far as different media tested with the drive.
Actually it may not be difficult to have 1 expandable test section for future media tests.
If it's solid on medium media I'll be going for the UF version.
That'll also either show me faster than 6x burns or isolate my throughput from my laptop to either the cardbus or the laptop.
I can't wait to read reviews.
This may be my Christmas drive.
