Re: Hard Drive Deals

Early plextors were Fibe, and yes pioneer was the standard for dvd-rw, till they started focusing on br devices and outsourced the dvd units.

Hivolt my first plextors had caddies!!

Bingo. Pioneer DVD burners haven't been anything special for the last few years, but at this point DVD burners are commodity devices that are all pretty much the same thing anyway.

Even their in-house BD-R drives have been disappointing, my Pioneer BD-R drive doesn't have a stellar history with Verbatim branded discs and the parity errors are much higher than with my LG's.

My first DVD burner was a Pioneer DVR-105 4x that only burnt DVR-R & DVD-RW media. I paid $199.00 for it at Futureshop on sale. I still have it installed in one of my Win 7 computers and do use it occasionally. The computer also has an ASUS sata DVD burner and a LG usb burner installed...
