What in the world kind of English is this written in, certainly not correct English! I can't understand what the review is saying...Emperor can you can tell us what the review is saying about the drive?

It's a Japanese site run thru babelfish's translator, so of course it isn't going to sound like natural English...

Cal 01 GenAn was correct, that japanese site had some interesting tests, of course the translation is not perfect but shows something for those hungry 716A users

BestBuy currently is selling the PX-716A. Does anyone know if this is a quality drive after you upgrade the firmware?? Or, would I be better off buying the Pioneer or the NEC?

Thanks,

If BestBuy is selling that drive online now it has to be a new drive probably with a later TLA number. Because a couple of weeks ago BestBuy was out of those drives at least in the USA.

I just went to BestBuy and bought it. I hope it works ok. How can I tell if it's a later TLA number??? It says on it:

TLA #0202

What do you think?

No, it already has FW 1.02 installed. The TLA# can be broken down into two parts: the first two digits signify the hardware revision while the last two the firmware version. So TLA#0202 means version 02 of the hardware with fw 1.02 installed from the factory.

Well, first of all, have you installed Plextools? Q-Check is one of Plextools' functions.
