Re: What retro hardware you killed today or in the past :(. Killing spree stories+serial killers are welcome.Rest in pie

As far as I know any Plextor made after the Premium (that means all Plextor DVD burners) is a rebadged OEM drive. That's why I collect only the "nice" Plextors that were actually designed and manufactured by Plextor. The Plextor PX-708A that arrived yesterday did not recognize any media. So I said …

DW1620 is also good for scanning, but its results are not always the same as the DW1640. That are good news for me... For me, my Benq …

Because those are the original Plextors that Plextor designed and manufactured themselves. If you look inside those drives you will see the amazing attention to detail, the stupendous overengineering (a 4-gear tray eject mechanism costs way more than 2 pulleys and a belt), and the high quality of …
