I'm waiting for it to come out first myself to decide on whether it has good or bad write quality. Speaking of which, according to that press release, it should be due out a week from Friday, but I don't put very much faith behind Plextor's release dates, remember the PX-712SA fiasco?


OOPS! I was trying to refer to the Toshiba's writing quality, NOT the Plexy 716A, but upon reviewing my post I see that was not clear :)

22 minutes to do an entire disc... not bad.

Well 22mn10s compared to the TDK1616 times in 4X (22mn51s here ) it's not a big evolution...

Maybe ISO image were a bit different in size, but... :-?

Their test image is only 6.86GB in size. That's quite a bit smaller than 7.96GB or whatever.

The drive is now available online.

- newegg has it for $86.99 + $4 shipping + tax in NJ and CA.

- thenerds.net is out of stock.

- randomsource.com has it for $75.27 + $9.99 shipping; I don't know anything about this merchant.

- esbuy.com has it, but the price is $95 including free shipping.


I wonder if there are any reviews out there.
I REALLY like the 5X DL capability!

It apparently writes DVD+R at 12X in a shorter time than most burners at 16X!!!!!
5:52
The downside is that it doesn't write much faster at 16X than 12X, if at all.
It wrote a Benq DVD+R disc at 16X in the same time (5:52).

Might be OK if Toshiba had a reputation for updating firmware...

Have Toshiba's been known in the past for fast ripping?
