I am considering to buy this DVD burner, (DVR-218, same as DVR S18) but I need to know if it automatically slows down when playing movies or music. Without the need of running any extra software (CDBremse, etc).
I have read that this Pioneer drive comes with a feature called “Quiet Mode” which is exactly what I need, but I need to know if it really works in practice.
so, I need the experience from those of you who own this drive (SATA version)
If you own the 219/S19 or 217/S17, I would also like to hear about them.
I own a Pioneer DVR-215, and it works well in this regard, but as you know, the current drives use a different chipset, and I am afraid that they behave differently.
