Is there a drive with better DVD-R burning quality than my Pioneer DVR-108?



I really love it. I don’t care about DVD+R burning, if only for dual layer that is for now too expensive. I have the Pioneer DVR-108 and it seems really good. I also do not really care about high burning speeds. I burn on high quality manufacturers to get the best burn quality possible. I owned a Toshiba SD-R5002 before, and it was terrific. I wonder if any Pioneer drive can beat my DVR-108, or any other brand, model, can offer a better DVD-R burn quality?

Thanks :slight_smile:


I think the results depend not only on the drive/firmware combination, also on the brand of media & the used burning speed.

Maybe the media section has useful info for you.


Look at the LG GSA-4163B. They produce the cleanest discs, but aren’t overly concerned with the fastest speeds (overspeeding). Just what you are looking for. This drive has much lower PI than pioneer Benq or NEC.
