so I'm about 1 click away from purchasing the plextor 716A, but paying twice as much as opposed to an NEC drive has made me hesitant. can anyone give me strong convictions as to why the plextor drive is worth twice as much?

Read our review of Plextor PX-716A, with the latest 1.04 firmware seems stable enough with most media, supports tons of unique features, if of course they interest you (Gigarec, Q-Check Functions, Autostrategy). Whats rather negative is that there isn't currently any underground community that provides overspeeds for Plextor drives...Of course there are RPC1 firmwares over TDB

It allows you to maintain the Ultra DMA 4 setting and burn (so far) reliably on the A8N-SLI!!! Which is great news for me as I just put mine together yesterday. Had issues with burning (had to try it myself) and switched to Ultra 33... The new firmware put me back @ Ultra 66 and I am starting to like this SLI board!

Does this new firmware bring something to ASUS A8V boards whatsoever?

hi kortik and welcome to our forums, with that setting under Plextools, you can change the booktype of DVD+R -> DVD-ROM, this way your media will has higher compatibility with desktop DVD players

Hello all

I just got my plex from overclockers uk which is TLA 0304 Made in feb 2005. Hope to have many a happy burn with it as it's a replacement for my old sony 510 which always never gave me a bad burn, will miss the thing...
