I've been looking into a decent duel layer dvd burner for my laptop and after a ton of reading here I've narrowed it down to 3 models:
Pioneer DVR-K05 -slotted drive
Pioneer DVR-K15 -tray/drawer style
The max write speeds are all the same with the exception of the cdrw write speed (20x for the NEC, 24x for the pioneers). The prices are all very comparable at less than $100 shipped online.
With Liggy's firmware updates, the NEC is capable of bitsetting with DVD+R , DVD+RW and DVD+R-DL. I also believe the NEC is a newer model.
I can't seem to find too much info on whether the pioneer models support bitsetting (with or without a user modded firmware). The K05's slotted design is appealing.
All of these models with fit and work with my toshiba laptop.
To the point, my questions:
*Do (can) the pioneer models support bitsetting?
*Is there any difference aside from the cd entry method between the two pioneers?
*Which drive would you get and why (perhaps I'm missing a good model)?
