[QUOTE=super vegeta ss;2662953]Is there any truth to this? Newegg has the 2208 instock, tempted to pull the trigger unless there will be a model revision. thanks[/QUOTE]
Yes, I did a quick google and found the report where I read it.
It’s the BDR-S08J, just the typical small revisions (refurbished plate, etc) that the pioneer models always bring along. But it came to my attention a small spec difference, it comes with the new technology PureRead3+ that improves readability of scratched surfaces. Besides that I can’t spot any difference other than the price… (292$),
I think that’s a bit too much for my budget, so I personally will pull the trigger with the newegg one, I just would like to know if there’s any difference between the 2208 and the already known 208XJ
edit1: Here’s another link. It seems to be more geared for “archival”…
edit2: The BDR-208JBK also comes with the PureRead3+ feature, but no price is announced yet.
