pity they couldn't test it with PlexTools Professional yet, it would have been really interesting to see how it works out :)

More like a preview. Without PlexTools Professional and 32x RW media you can't test half of the drive's features.

It's a preview since they also used an unfinalized firmware version (0.DF). The drive seems to have good performance though..

I wish they would have compared jitter and C1/C2 error rates in their burning media section, instead of just how long it takes to burn different CD-Rs....

you know, it's really lame advertising for a website that I'm already on :roll:

sorry, I'm not trying to be offensive, I just found your comment kind of silly :)
