[QUOTE=negritude;2243347]Not a misprint. It’s their new drive. There’s a thread about it in the Pioneer forum. It’s real, and early tests says it’s better than the truly lackluster DVR-116D. Faster speeds are marketing hype and irrelevant. Thank goodness, because we thought Pioneer might be going downhill.

Since when is the DVR-116D lackluster?
I’ve got the 112, 115 & 116 all hooked up currently & the 116 easily holds its own in terms of quality & the read speeds on the DL’s are incredibly fast, which is a huge plus for ripping.
But of course, I’ll be happy to welcome the 117 into my build if it’s as good, or better than any of the previous drives.
Oh, uh, if anyone knows of a good place to buy good, cheap 5.25" IDE external cases, I would appreciate it, Dealsonic was previously my main source.
