[QUOTE=Albert;2089827]I know affected internal drives could be returned to Pioneer for a repair/replacement. I do not know whether this applies to the external drives, nor do I know whether or not they will honor it in the situation of this “refurbished” drive, or if they even still honor it period.[/QUOTE]
No, it never applies to non-factory refurbs or used drives, which is why this should be avoided. Unlike the DVR-112, where you have a date range you can use to determine whether this might still work, with this it’s a total crapshoot. Like I said and made quite plain, DO NOT BUY. PERIOD. Sometimes it’s that simple.
