I am a long time reader of the forums but finally need some advice.
I came across some new Pioneer 115d burners and now I have to decide if this is the one or if there are better options you could suggest. I have read great things about the Optiarc 7200 series so this is also a contender.
I will use the new drive mostly for burning DVDs while transfering video from VHS as well as reading a variety of commercial movies and many +R disks made on my console burner.
Thus I want it all. I need versatility. It seems those that do great burns are mediocre readers and vice versa. Thus my concern.
Would you say the 115d is right for the task or do you have a better alternative? Thanks for any help. You are dealing with a novice so plain English would be helpful. I don't know all of the acronyms yet.
