I purchased this Plextor Plextor PX-716A model, as I have been a strong advocate of the brand - ever since the 40TS. I have read the other reviews (but I would recommend you go to a dedicated hardware review site or forum to base you purchase decision) and I cannot see what the problem seems to be with the (non) writes that the others talk about. I have a pretty high end system, so maybe its a bottleneck issue (?) - but lets leave that to one side.
I have had no coasters on CD (R or R/W)... (read more)

I am in contact with Plextor support regarding my PX-716A, and from the information and testing they specified, they said the drive was bad, and that it would be replaced with all the information. I needed the original receipt, but that wasn't available because I had already sent it in to Plextor to claim my rebate, which I never received due to a technicality. I am still waiting for an answer to my e-mail from support. (read more)

The Plextor Plextor PX-716A does not read all the disks that my older Plextor 708A reads. Problems with writing disks correctly. I have wasted 5 SL DVD and about 6 CDs.
I have not tried DL DVD as they are very expensive and I had no trust left in this drive after the performance it showed on CDs and single layer DVDs. So it's been returned back to the supplier. (read more)

Well, with my Plextor Plextor PX-716A I received a drive with TLA# 0203. That means hardware revision 2 and firmware vers. 3.
Plextor Belgium held back the drive for the European market due to some quality issues.
The final TLA# 0202 and all the successors are covering the expectations in plextor products. So my PX-716A (TLA# 0203) delivers an excellent write-quality and a high reading speed. So I am very pleased with this Plextor drive.
I have to recommend the following dvd media, which... (read more)

I stand corrected on the Plextor Plextor PX-716A. I spoke too soon. It turns out that this drive makes very poor burns that are not readable in many drives. Even its own utility, Plextools, shows clearly how inferior these burns are. Unfortunately, I did all my QA testing on drives that had excellent error correction. I should have been more critical in my first review. Definitely do not buy this drive! (read more)

I almost passed on the Plextor Plextor PX-716A based on many negative comments I'd seen. But based on my previous good experience and support on my Plextor 712a, I opted to be brand-loyal and give the 716 a try. I felt I could always return it if there was a problem. I'm happy to say that I had no trouble at all and the drive works every bit as well as the 712 and, of course, I am now ready to burn double layer (when the media prices drop.) My TLA number is 0101, which means that this is the... (read more)

The Plextor Plextor PX-716A didn't recognize the media, even the Plextor brand media included in the box. The cumbersome hardware self-diagnostic test outlined in the manual didn't work either. I am now requesting Plextor to give me a "Return Merchandise Authorization" number. (read more)
