I had a pioneer 215, and wondered about keeping it, I liked it, prior had ownd liteons, incl an aopen, and lg’s.
currently, I have an optiarc 7200, but when I had the pioneer, it wasn’t recognised by the bios by name, so it put me off, I had a samsung at the time as well, the 203, and that was.
I was wondering if anyone else had that, if it was exclusive to the pioneer, or why it didn’t recognise it by name?
I liked it, the build was far better than any of the others, the lg and sammys particulary cheap feeling, and the liteons not much better.
I know you can’t now judge burn quality by feel, but the koreans really are flimsy feeling, and the pi was lovely.
so I would like to return to pi, but am wondering if again it wouldn’t be seen by name which troubled me
any insight as to why, I don’t think it was simply bios version and wouoldn’t have been cured with a bios flash
any other drives feel more substantial? or is the pi the best built of the lot
I took them all apart and the pi was streets ahead inside, too. lovely build
