So I have received an answer from Plextor. Here it is:
I have one problem with the PX-54TA Black.
I can not enable speed read through Plex Tools and when I enable it with the button when I change the disk in the drive I have to enable again the Speed Read function. Please tell me what to do. Mine firmware is 1,00
Also this drive is very loud when the tray is opening and closing and it don't have the quality of the Premium. Please tell me is it normal for this drives to be so loud. Thank you in advance for the help.
With best regards
ANSWER FROM PLEXTOR:
Dear sir ,
This is normal for this unit.
If you want to use the speedread fuction then you'll have to enable it everytime.
Kind regards ,

I wonder what to think? I feel that this drive is crap and it does not justify the money that I have given for it (it is the most expensive CDROM drive on our market). I think that such things should be mentioned on Plextor's site. I purchased this drive because it is advertised as 54x speed CDROM, but the speeds that it achievs are far beyon the mentioned from Plextor. Just for information this drive can extract audio tracks @ 16x max. I expected that the quality will be the same as Premium but...
Thank God that I have purchased Premium.
Please suggest me some 48x-54x CDROM that is able to reach these speeds and that is quiet when openig and closing the tray. I want mainly to rip audio CD's at high speed.
