I originally posted a question about this drive (Pioneer DVR-710B5PK), back at the beginning of July when it was $59.99 + tax at Best Buy.
Only got one answer, and a suggestion about the BenQ DW-1650BG (OEM)from Newegg at $32+, plus shipping.
I didn’t get around to buying either due to a death in the family and associated problems.
Anyway, this week Best Buy again has the Pioneer DVR-710B5PK on sale at $39.99 plus tax. So, 6 to 7 weeks later same drive is $20.00 cheaper!!
I don’t care about included software as I have full version of Nero 184.108.40.206.
You guys (and other gals) have had time to reflect on this drive and test it further and I would like a realistic review please?!
1.) Is this drive a decent one? Main use will be data/system backup.
2.) Your experiences with it, one way or another? Good, Bad, Ugly??
All suggestions & comments gladly welcome!
Thanks a bunch.
PS: The BenQ-DW1650 is no longer available at Newegg, I think!?
