Life Expectancy

How many DVD-s will I be able to burn with Pioneer 108DVR?
What will fail 1st: machanics or laser diode?

Im aware that noone can answer me these questions, but i wont be happy if my burner breaks up before i burn 1000 DVDs.

Question: Is 1000 reasonable number or I am asking too much?

well im not sure about your 108, but my 107 has burnt 800+ dvds and is still going strong, so i would expect the 108 to be as reliable


Sure 1000 is a minimum expectancy. It seems to depend also of media used; the RW media tends to shorten the life expectancy due to its higher temperature need.
