I got the 7200S because it went on sale the second day after I decided on the 215D. I couldn’t resist :p. The price has dropped a wee bit more since then.
I still want to get the Pioneer 215D when I come across one on sale. I’ll put it in another system. No harm in having 2 good burners.
I haven’t put the 7200S through a thorough test. But from what I’ve burned on it so far I am pretty pleased with it. I don’t regret it.
One additional thing that I liked about the 7200S is that it can do scanning, although not completely reliable, but from comparing it to scans on a BenQ 1655 it’s not too far of, and I think it’s good enough to get an idea if the disc is good enough to keep. Kind of a plus for me because the 7200S was for a micro ATX that has space for 1 optical drive.
As far as I know the 215D cannot do scanning. Correct me if I’m wrong.
Short answer: I don’t think that the 7200S will disappoint you.
