I am in a biiig hurry, and I need to know which one of these 2 drives I should buy. I like very much the Pioneer 108BK (the black version), but i doesn't support the DVD DL - burning standard, and also a few other burning speeds (32x instead of 40x for CD-R). His brother, the 109BK is very good at reading and burning, but I heard (and seen) that it has got a few problems with reading CD's. 108BK reads practically everything (some friends of mine say that). Also it is said that if you insert a broken CD into it, the mecanism starts to emit a strange noise and it fails to read it, while in the 108BK it works fine (it reads it). I am sure all of you guys know this Anyway, if it was a disscusion about this, please post in the link, it will be a great help...
BTW, I heard also that 109BK/D models are produced with cheap technology. Is that true?
All the best, Dorian
