Hmm it depends.
For dual layer -> Plextor
But for 16x DVD+R and most other +R media benq !!. Just take a look arround which drive is the real 16x burner. (works with most 16x media. Burns really at 16x and doesn't switch back most times to 14x and burns the best quality at 16x !)
Just saw an article at CD Freaks where OC-Freak compared the two with the latest firmwares.
The Benq did better than the PX-716A, to my disappointment - I just bought two PX-716A drives recently due to a very hot deal that was hard to resist.
Nevertheless I think I will keep them - they are sealed, so I could return them if I wanted to.
I really like the concept Autostrategy (if it works as promised)...
I asked OC Freak (my first post there in ages) if having PoweREC enabled might have helped (PoweREC was disabled on Plexy, yet WOPC was enabled on Benq; the latter since the Benq drive's software made his PC crash if he tried to disable it).
