Wanna bet 16x is around the corner?

:slight_smile:

Actually, the spec sheet on the Pioneer page states that the drive is SATA I. It will not require SATA III to burn full speed…

7 Minute Abs! LOL.

IMO, based on the “ERROR” rates currently reported at 10-12x and the QUALITY of LTH media, do you really want to burn in the 14-16x range?!? It doesn’t make pratical sense yet… as much as the hype enables it to be tempting to become an early adopter…

And all for that low low $290 projected price… even HALF that would be only be viable in AppleLand.

That’s right next to Fantasyland, I think. Or is that now called SurfaceLand?

Does anybody know what are the DAE features on this one?

  • Accurate Stream?
  • No audio cache?
  • C2 error reporting?
  • HTOA?
  • Lead-in and lead-out overread?
