Pioneer 106s

hi!

can somebody plz tell me if the Pioneer 106s DVD-ROM is a good reader? as in terms of speed, as in terms of backing up games?

thanks in advance :slight_smile:

1: It’s NOISY
2: It’s locked to 17X DAE reading
3: It doesn’t support reading 96 byte subchannel data.
4: It skips errors very slow.(bad CloneCD performance)
5: It’s no good at reading bad CD-R Media or scratched discs.

Byside this, there is nothing wrong with it.

But I prefer a lite-on LTD-163 over this one…even a toshiba SD-M1502 or SD-M1612 is better.

i can’t get lite on drives where i live!!

which one do u recommend of these:

DVD ROM PIONEER 16X OEM
DVD ASUS 16X
DVD TOSHIBA 16X IDE
DVD PANASONIC 16X
DVD SAMSUNG 16X OEM
DVD AOPEN 16X
DVD LG 16X BOX

thanks again!!!

Well …

I have tried the 106s and I’m currently using a Toshiba 1612M and I can say it’s waaaaaaaay better at reading all kinds of burnt CD’s than the 106.

I don’t know any of the drives you list except the Toshiba.

I had an AOPEN once … worked very well.

I don’t know if the AOPEN 16X handles Protected Audio Discs as well as their burner does, but if it do it would be a good choice!

Just make sure it is region free or that it can be made region free.
