Now, I do have an all Plextor computer :D

On a side note, my mom's next computer will be an all Lite-On Computer (LTR-48125W and LTD-163D) :lol: (My old drives)

very funny.

very silly.

it's well known that this DVD-ROM drive is rebadged (prbly Mitsumi).

and as i recall it's not a very good drive either.
so for the purpose of "having an all Plextor computer" you're willing to sacrifice quality and performance?

Nice setup!

Isn't the PX-116 a Pioneer drive? That's not so bad...

My ideal setup:
Plextor PX-708A (better yet: a Plextor DVD+R DL drive!)
Plextor Premium
Lite-On 166S

What I got:
Lite-On 166S
Lite-On 52327S (Crap. Absolute crap..at least over 40x)
Optorite DD0401 - Good, but not a Plex. But then, Plextor doesn't have HD-BURN :wink:

Yeah, it's a Pioneer. That was one of the selling points. Having a Plextor all computer is nice, (mostly for looks) but I hear Pioneer makes kick ass DVD-ROM drives, so now I can find out from my own expirience. dodecahedron, did you get my last line of hebrew there?

my bad.

i got mixed up with the "Plextor" PX-54TA which is a rebadged Mitsumi.

i guess i should eat my previous words to aviationwiz, as i presume the Pioneer DVD-ROM drive is reasonably good. :roll:

OK, i'm eating my words! :o :)

still though, such persistence and tenacity in keeping loyalty to a brand... :o

avaiationwiz, to be honest i hadn't noticed this until Ian and Monte asked.

i understand the Hebrew words, but don't understand what you had meant.
the sentence doesn't make sense to me.
(and if it means what i think it means, it's a bit harsh in response to Ian's joke, don't you think?)

Maybe it would have be Lo Ghenom? Not quite sure, but I think you knew what I meant. Maybe a tad harsh for the joke, but nonetheless funny.

For those of you that are wondering, it means "Hell No." Or at least that's what I meant to say, and I think I got it right...

well, Hell No = Gehenom Lo if words are translated literally.

but this sentence doesn't make much sense in Hebrew. i was thinking Hebrew (not literally translated English) and so didn't understand.

not harsh really.

what i had originally thought you had meant was something else (and much nastier). from the word "Lo" having more than one meaning...
