1 out of 5 eggsDrive keeps burning coasters

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: About 50% of the disks I burn are coasters. Many audio burns from iTunes have failed. And NONE of the DVDs (not copy protected) that I tried to copy worked. DVD copy process fails 100% of the time about 5% into the job. DVD copies work fine with my old Panasonic drive. This Plextor drive is a doorstop.

Other Thoughts: I'm sad. I didn't get to test this drive until after 30 days of purchase, so I can't return it. I'm also very disappointed by Plextor. I have been a loyal Plextor customer for a decade. Now that time is over.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointing - not a Plextor

Pros: Very Pretty. Reliable - reads and writes perfectly, but . . .

Cons: Slow. Does not compare to my Plextor PX-800A. Burns +DVDr at 4x max. Burns +DVDR DL at 2.4x max. I tried both Verbatim and Memorex media which had burned at 16x (+DVDr) and 8x (+DVDR DL) respectively on the PX-800A drive. Worse, it reads at only 1/4th the speed of the 800.

Other Thoughts: Newegg sold at 39 bucks, cheap for a Plextor, but expensive for what it really is.

5 out of 5 eggsfirmware?

Pros: this guy works ok... the movie thing is a joke, since the movies offered are all either the new and witless movies or lost indie films who happened to have been made by a cousin of the site owner, or something.

Cons: you mentioned you'd gotten firmware update, but this is the 806SA model, and there are no firmware upgrades in that neighborhood except for the 810 -- the external version. that update wouldn't accept my 806. can you clue me?
