Hey all, I’m on the verge of getting a DVD burner and the choice has pretty much come down to either a DVR-212 or a DVR-115DBK.
Anybody willing to share some comments/opinions/stories etc. on which is better?
I’ve read some reviews and it seems both are good. Both of them are about the same price so it’s not going to come down to which is cheaper. I’m also stuck on whether to go with IDE or SATA, which might be my deciding factor.
Can somebody comment on which has the overall higher quality CD/DVD burns, or are they roughly the same? And how good are they with reading CD/DVD media?
Specs-wise, they’re almost the same, save for 212 can read/write DVD-RAM and 115DBK can only read (which doesn’t seem to be a biggie for me). 115DBK has 20x DVD+/-R whilst the 212 is only 18x. And according to Pioneer’s website the 212 can’t write CDDA/Text/etc unlike the 115DBK. What’s the difference between being a Dual-Format and Multi-Format drive?
