Plextor PX-740A reviewed @ Anandtech

Well, its based on the BenQ drive (I am sure you already know that), which can't be bad since from the sound of it, it is a drive that many seems to be waiting for (I am still waiting for the review here :)).

Overall, Anandtech gives it the nod.

Weird methodology, IMO. Why the limited media tests? Why the hell are they showing PI/PIE totals?? What about the error distributions?

Where are the CD/DVD read tests?

Hallo!

I like Anandtech for other reviews about PC-components, but they can´t do good reviews about optical drives
Benq DW 1640, LG GH-20N, Pioneer BDR-208
Crucial M4, Sandisk SSD, Plextor M5S, Sandisk Ultra Plus, OCZ Petrol 256GB

Our last look at a product from Plextor was at the PX-712A 12x model, which performed extremely well in our media tests.


So they skipped the 716A review and instead opted to take a look at the 740A, which is a non-Plextor product!

Brilliant :roll:

Huh? I swear they had some "exclusive" look at the 716A. Maybe that was the 712A. Even then, I'm sure it was in one of their roundups.

I was quite sure they had the 716A as well, but I've done a search and found nothing. Guess it was all in my head :lol:

But yea, though I trust Anantech overall, I think that they are better for motherboard, CPU, RAM, GFX card etc.

I mainly rely on cdrlabs for optical storage, and storagereview for hard drives, and other sites for digital cams.
