I don't know what Plextor is doing, but the drives they're building aren't of the QUALITY of earlier drives like the Premium Drive, PX-712A, and PX-716A! It just seems that PLEXTOR is slipping, backward!?

From the DAE point of view, the 755 seems to be quite capable ... we will see how good the 'new' Autostrategy will work with upcoming firmware releases ...

Thanks for the review !
But I miss some in depth explanations and testing about the new Advanced Autostrategy
like what YSS did here (but in  japanese ...):

I think Plextors days are probably numbered simply because they can't compete with the likes of LG, BenQ, and NEC.  Those companies are producing quality drives at a fraction of the cost to consumers.  Plextor is making cuts to reduce the cost of their products but they are doing a horrible job of passing that savings onto the consumer.  They have no OEM deals with PC mfg's to justify more mass production... the same was true for Yamaha... Yamaha and Plextor were the kings of optical storage... now only Plextor remains, but for how long?

I am interested in the technology to destroy -R/+R media, but I doubt this is enough of a selling factor... How often do you really want to destroy your media?  No - it is interesting, but ho-hum interesting at best... as was Yamaha's DiscT@2 on their last retail drive.

I love my Plextor PX-716A, but unless Plextor can innovate beyond what it currently marketing, there is no reason for me to get a new Plextor model - It does DAE well and the other things I need.  Even the forthcoming PX-760 with it's 18x burning speed does not interest me.  It is not going to save enough time for me; a casual home user that prefers quality to quantity.

I agree with you m8. Moreover Plextor cannot compete LG, BenQ, and NEC because those are colossus companys while Plextor has a very small product line in comparison to them.

I can destroy media much faster than they do...

SithTracy, you know, I hadn't thought of what you mentioned about Yamaha before your post, but the more I think about what you said, the more I wonder about Plextor's fate!!!

Well, I'm not market specialist, but it makes you wonder about the future of Plextor.  But there is a difference in Plextor and Yamaha's situation.  Yamaha had other areas of the business that made it money; Plextor seems to have it's only strength in optical storage, though they dabble with video capture, but that is a tough market to jump into.

The other think I look at is Plextor going to BenQ to get into a budget market, but I feel the PX-740A was priced to high and stripped of features.  Being the researching type (as most of the forum dwellers are), I bought a BenQ DW1640, spent less money and got the better offering.  I have mixed feelings about Plextor offering rebadged drives... It cheapens their trusted name in a way, but I imagine they are making efforts to stay afloat by doing it.

I hope Plextor continues to provide great products, but looking at their forthcoming line-up it does make you wonder.

Do you really need this crap?

Some tests with the 716 didn't have any mean

What is it? I think Plextools explains everything about it:

Thanks for your opinion.

But I like to know why does YSS
- the "first" DVD tester pubishing on the net -
always include the TA test [by using now PxScan of alexnoe]
when he publishes the review of a new burner

for example here for the PX-755 and 8x DVD-R's
http://homepage2.nifty.com/yss/px755a/px755a_dvd8x1.htm
 
 
I expect from CDRinfo to publish at least some extensive TA tests
and demonstrate that this test is "crap"

Don't take it personaly dude, I just can't figure out how a 15 seconds test can be so accurate (???)
