Hi Alex Thyl, can you tell me where to get the region free firmware hack for Pioneer slim DVD/RW drive? I have a Pioneer K15.
I don't think there is a clear winner in slim DVD/RWs. Matsushita is good, but has its shortcomings (you can not make it region free in any way). Toshiba is slow, unreliable, but can be made region free. Pioneer is also good, quick, reliable and can be made region free. I don't have any experience with NECs, unfortunately.
