Pioneer 112D at Newegg

vbimport

#1

Highly anticipated 18x 112D is now available!

Who already has one on order??


#2

Newegg has it listed as, DVR-112 without the “D”. Is there a 112 and a 112D? or is this a Newegg mistake?

I will buy the 112 if it is better than the 111D. I need a new burner.


#3

The 112 supports DVD-RAM, the 112D doesn’t. The specs and description at NewEgg are for the DVR-112 (the one with DVD-RAM). NewEgg will probably offer this with free shipping pretty soon.


#4

112 and 112D both share identical hardware, if I’m not mistaken. Both are crossflashable to the 112L variant which adds +R auto bitsetting as well as RAM.


#5

I wouldn’t trust Newegg to ship a 112 even though I just ordered one myself. I bought a 111 from them and it was a 111-D. Plan on using the Dangerous Bros buffalo firmware for crossflashing as Dalen mentioned.


#6

Based on the pricing, I’d say the model at newegg is likely a D model as well. The D model should sell for a little less than the 112.

If anyone has ordered one, please post here when your drive arrives so we’ll know for sure what model they are really selling!


#7

My estimated delivery is tomorrow, 16 February, I’ll let you know what they shipped. I’m expecting a 112-D, not the 112 they list. Not a big deal thanks to those fabulous Dangerous Brothers who really can flash anything!


#8

What is the difference between 112 and 112 D ???


#9

Post #3, this thread.


#10

The D is the cheaper model and the poster above mentioned that the 112 writes RAM and the 112D only reads. In any case, crossflashing to the 112L adds all the features.


#11

got my today. Yes, it is 112D, not the 112 as they list on newegg.


#12

You might want to consider the Buffalo firmware. I have always found it much superior to the stock, and it adds auto bitsetting for +R.

siusiuenen, thank you for letting us know… the drive at Newegg is a 112D.

Post some burns when you get a chance!


#14

you’re welcome dalenquaice, will report about it as soon as i made some burns


#15

I just ordered one. :slight_smile: Now to decide which Liteon to retire, my 1635S or 165H6s?? :confused: 1635 burns better at 8X but the 165H6S is a better scanner. :doh:


#16

Newegg now has it listed as a “D”.


#17

I just checked and it still is listed as 112, cant find the D anywhere?


#18

It matters not which one they list. It will be the 112D and it is easily flashed to whatever version you want with TDB firmware.


#19

The egg now shows “out of stock”.
Mine is due to be delivered Tuesday, cant wait to test it.


#20

Does the 112d scan media better then the 111d…I wonder… (AKA nero cd-dvd speed tests) Or is this a general pioneer issue?
