Considering the reports of mediocre performance of Optidrive Control, Plexutilities, and KProbe's BLER check accuracy relative to the old Plextools - it seems to me that this is one piece of "vintage digital" actually worth paying a premium for.

Anyway - I just ordered another backup unit considering that I had one of my older Premium drives go down recently. I figure we're at the tail end of even NOS Plextor "Premium" line drives being available.
