Pioneer DVR-K05 or NEC 6500?



Hello, I’m planning to upgrade my laptop’s optical drive, and I can’t quite decide between the NEC 6500 slimline drive or the Pioneer DVR-K05 slimline drive.

Currently, I’m leaning towards the NEC, but last night I came across the Pioneer, and I really like the slot loading. I cant seem to find any review on the K05/K15, so I was wondering if anyone here had used the Pioneer, or if anyone here could otherwise give me some good advice.



Laptop drives don’t get a lot of reviews since they tend to be OEM. I heard you can get a 10 minute burn from the 6500 using TY media, which is fast for a laptop burner.


Have same question… what did you decide?
