Summary: If you want an amazing reliable burner that will never let you down or ever burn a single coaster regardless of the format or media type, then this is the drive you want by far!!!
Pros: Extremely reliable makes a perfect burn every time regardless of what kind or type of media! Plex-es have always been known for their "Grit" and this 1 is no different and will most certainly NOT LET YOU DOWN!!! Amazing drive that's why I bought 7 of them!
Cons: None. At one time they were pretty pricy but they changed that.
Pros: Great burner, I've always had a great experience with plextor dvd-rw's and this blu ray burner lived up to it. The use of PlexTools with this thing allows for easy firmware updating, disc quality/scanning, and lots of tweaks (acoustic properties and the ability to change them is nice)
Summary: I planned on getting this burner and actually was just about to finally buy it. Luckily for me I took a minute to look for blur ray media with "Lightscribe" support. If you don't know. There is "NONE". It doesn't exist as of the time of this posting.
Pros: As of this post, nothing beats it. Many of the competitors don't play nice with certain media. This drive has no reported issues. I have 3 forums and know several that have this drive, all are fellow techs. I've read all the reviews and talked to my friends that have this and have replaced others...
Cons: No blue ray lightscribe media. Not the drive manufacturers fault, but sorry, that's pretty lame this far into these drives. See other thoughts.
