yea pretty lame in my opinion. Everything else including CD/CDRW is the same. At least they could have raised that as well. I couldn't care less about DL burning at 8x as I never burn faster than 4x anyways on those discs. DVD-RAM could be viable choice for often data backups but that is about it. I am waiting to see 3 things before I get this drive if I do seeing as though nothing jumps out to make me want to buy it off the bat.
1.) Is the CAV problem in the 109 absolutely not apparent in the 110D
2.) Can the A10 firmware be flashed to OEM drives to enable such features?
3.) Is there any third party manfuacturers firmwares enabling bitsetting like on 108 and 109.
If those are a yes I may get it otherwise my 109 is just fine the way it is.
Wondering if anyone knows of any third party manufacturers that are making the 110D such as piodata and Buffalo or is it strictly Pioneer manufacturing the drives.
