Seems like Pioneer has released new models again.
Sounds like China only (CHx).
Hopefully they aren't a step backwards in burning quality like the 216/116 were compared to the 215/115.
Pioneer China has released new DVD Writer DVR-217VXL with Labelflash support.
Now available at NewEgg in the states:
I want to know how Pioneer can afford to offer the deluxe models for so cheap in China but not here a:a
DVR-117DJ and 117J are now available in JP too...And with a downloadable official utility will have the same functions as the Pioneer Retail Drives. The bezel design is however the OEM one...
koba, same price as for the x16 or more expensive?
Mine arrived today. Any need for pics of the insides?
You bought the 117 to go along with your 7240S :eek:. I can't really speak on the need for you to open it up to take pics, but I look forward to seeing the first scans of this model:).
They both sounded very promising, so I couldn't resist getting them both.
I'll be happy to post some scans tomorrow night after work. I'm very curious how the 117 will burn compared to the 7240S.
That would be awesome!!
so what is different about the 117? On paper it looks identical to the 116.
Up to you.
Price is between 40 and 50US for the Bulk versions.Dont know about the retail version though...I would say its about the same as when 116 series came out...
Note: New thread started for DVR-117D results.
New drive just received. Will test it out when I get back to the states.
Will this drive be sold in Europe as well?
Not yet, I believe it takes more than 2 months.....
Look at DVD+R / DVD+RW specs:
