[QUOTE=Dogway;2673873]@cvs: yes well, it’s mainly since I read that the 207 had a new air flow system that helps on burn stability, and such. But yes, I also saw your 205 scan tests.[/QUOTE]
Sounds like a bunch of PR hot air to me
[QUOTE=Dogway;2673873]I’m about to buy the drive in here, but the photo of the EBK doesn’t match with the model. Should I buy, ask or what? I couldn’t find any contact link.[/QUOTE]
That’s definitely the wrong photo. You’ll basically get a drive with the usual plain standard black bezel, not one with the posh bezel in the figure, which is typically used by BDR-S07 drives …
The correct picture should be this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pioneer-207Ebk-Bluray-Burner-Bdr-Retail/dp/B007XLQRNS/ref=pd_cp_computers_2
I guess it is pretty safe to go ahead and order it, particularly as the order is fulfilled by Amazon themselves. I’m sure you’ll get a proper 207EBK.
[QUOTE=Dogway;2673873]About DL Media, it’s easy to find panasonic x2 on ebay, but I’m about to buy the x4 ones. Just judging from jadburners recent JVC/Panasonic x4 scan tests, which are not technically Panasonic branded, but should serve as reference for comparison, or should not?
If I was to follow katraine suggestions the x2 should be even better, BUT this time I’m talking about the original branded Panasonic x4. As a matter of fact higher rated speed media always perform better than the lower rated speed media at the same burn speed, but I want to hear opinions.[/QUOTE]
I can’t say anything about those I’m afraid. The only DL media I burned was based on the 4x TDK MID. The only Panasonic media I can vouch for are the 6x BD-R (SL) ones … probably the best discs money can buy at the moment based on the outstanding scans they give.
