Pioneer 106s or 120s?

Greetings. The Pioneer 106s is hard to find right now. I have an extra one on the way in case my current one dies. I really like the fact that this drive can rip at a decent speed.

The Pioneer 120s is replacing the 106s. Does anyone know if the 120s is locked @ 2x or has any other issues with ripping discs? I really like the 106s but am curious about the 120 series and if it has ripping limitations since it’s a much newer model…

Thanks

yeah im interested on that one too.
is the 120s better than the 106s?

The 120s is a lot better from 106s.
It can read every dvd format (except dvd-ram) and can rip a movie from aprox. 5x up to 12x

DVD+/-RW read speed is 4x to 10x !!

You can use it to copy onthefly your dvd-r’s in 4x :slight_smile:

In addition it can make high speed DAE up to 40x and can handle very well scratched audio cd’s with EAC.

Also it doesn’t make much noise.

In overall it’s a very good drive :slight_smile:

What are u talking about? Pioneer 120S is locked at 2x ripping speed. Unless there is a way to unlock it and I don’t know about it…

you can get hacked firmwares that allow faster ripping than 2x.

and Stelios: you exactly described my dvr-106…

É've searched a lot and I can’t find such a firmware for pioneer 120s. There are such firmwares for other drives, but not for pioneer.

already checked these out:

?

This is a region free firmware patch. It doesn’t unlock the ripping speed.

so whats the diff between the two? I only saw 5ms time difference on pioneers site with no real reviews of the newer drive.

This is slot in drive
