What are some sites to get these products? I cant seem to find them on newegg.com

Samsung SH-S203
Pioneer DVR-215

You should be able to buy the 215D directly from Pioneer USA. http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Shop/DVD-Burners/Serial+ATA+DVD+Burners

The Samsung has pretty much disappeared from the market now. One of our members was hunting for one a couple of weeks ago and came up empty I believe.

Why are these burners so hard to find?

Pioneer.com no longer has the 215 (black or beige). I had ordered a black one on the 24th, and I just received a call today telling me they were out of stock/no longer in production. They asked me if I wanted a 216, and then they asked me why I wanted the older model, and that a number of other people had requested the older model as well. I just canceled my order because I wasn’t sure how good the 216 is compared to the 215. Now I have a new system build with a 8 year old DVD drive (no burning capabilities). Need to research other drives :wink:

Pioneer needs to start reading commentary around here is all I’ve got to say! :slight_smile:
You should have sent them a link to the “mediocre results from 216” thread. I’m sure they would have appreciated it. :bigsmile:
