Pioneer DVD 212 SATA for 16 bucks today only at Microcenter

Store pickup only. Beige. 18X, one of the best writers ever, especially with DL.

In store pickup kinda sucks when you don’t have a stoe even remotely close by like me. I get burned the same way when Frys has there in store only stuff. A good deal though for
locals anyway.

Is it really the best writer ever? I might pick one up for 20$. I’m kind of lucky living in the Dallas area. We have compusa, frys and micro center not to mention axion tech (same company as directron so I can pickup anything they carry without having to pay shipping).

You definitely can’t go wrong for the price. If I could pick one up locally I would. The nice thing about that is if there are any issues with it you can just return it without any RMA stuff. Thats worth a couple of bucks by itself in my book.

Not even remotely close. It’s decent…if it works. Poor quality control on the 112D/212D models. Personally, I would try to find a 115D/215D instead.

Thanks for the info. I didn’t really need another drive. It would have just been another toy to play with (and maybe replace an older drive if it turned out to be good). I still have an lg gh22ns30 from Christmas shitting on the shelf unused as I haven’t gotten around to playing with it yet.
