Is the Pioneer DVR-212D worth buying?

I’m very interested in purchasing this drive due to the SATA interface. However, I’m not sure how this drive will perform. Will it perform as well as the DVR-112D? I mainly burn Verbatim DVD+R DL 2.4x discs and Verbatim DVD-R 8x discs.

Read the comparison at speedlabs.org

So no one else on this board has this drive?

So you never have either used search or read other threads in this subforum…

Here is a link to the Speedlabs.org conclusion. I have the drive and am very happy with it, though currently I am about 700 miles from it on vacation for spring break. I updated it with firmware 1.15 before I left and did only one burn with it.

Newegg had them in stock over the weekend, so I pulled the trigger. It’s supposed to come today.

I run a SATA RAID 1 HD configuration, and I found that my Samsung like it, but my Lite-On hates it! I’m switching out the LO, and really hope that this Pioneer will work better.

That link that you provided is to the 112 thread, not 212.

He just made a mistake on the thread is all, surely you can see the threads on the 212 can’t you? :bigsmile:
