Has hell frozen over? :lol:

I figure you would have parted with your left nut sooner than a Plextor product.

Yeah, got the Pioneer DVR-107. You sure haven't been reading the DVD forums, :lol: I swear I told you over IM once too...

Plextor rocks btw, I'll be the first to get the PX-712SA :)

WHOA! just checked their website, and 12x burning! I thought that Phillips were making 16x though by then! Hmm.... anyone know if this can overclock any media, like the 708A?

For customers who want to evaluate SATA performance, Plextor also offers a SATA Conversion Kit for its PlexWriter™ PX-5224A, Premium 52/32/52A CD-R/RW drives, and the PX-708A DVD±R/RW “dual format” 8X R-DVD drive. Plextor’s SATA Conversion Kit includes a SATA cable harness and IDE/Parallel ATA-to-SATA daughter board, enabling OEMs and systems integrators to evaluate SATA prior to availability of the PX-712SA.


What do they mean by this??

Too bad RW are still 4x, but i dont use that format that often anyways though... wait a sec, i do! yah, that is too bad. o well, 12x burning is still pretty sweet.

also, i guess 708a users wont get 8x dvd-r. :cry:

if this drive can overclock media, than i am definitely interested (well im already interested, but ill be even more interested)

I would assume it's some kind of optical SATA adapter that's tweaked for optical drives.

SATA on an optical drive is 99% hype. Put a 10 gallon per minute fuel pump and an 800 cubic foot per minute Holley double pumper on a Vanagon and how much faster do you think it will go?

Put 120mph rated tires on a Yugo and do you think it will go 120?

Actually SATA will help especially on Intel chipsets where it's integrated, and you are doing multitasking.

Not to mention getting rid of legacy cabling.

I usally am downloading something or doing multiple things when I burn DVd's and such, so going to SATA will help users like myself

Well, the 107 is faster when it comes to DVD-R which I appear to burn more often now, but I'm pissed that I can only burn DVD+R at 8x on 4x media. PX-708A is still the second best drive around, the only reason why the 107 is worth a dime is because of the hacked firmware, without that, it would be useless.
