So which one would you get? the Panasonic UJ-845-B or the Pioneer DVR-K04?
i like the Panasonic b/c of the DVD-RAM support, but i think the Pioneer might be a better writer. Plus i've had 3 Pioneer Slot Load 5.25" drives and i LOVE them, they read just about anything and rather well also. i believe Pioneer has the slot load mechanism in control. i would either be putting it in an external enclosure to use w/ a ultralight laptop or i might just install it in my Sony TR2A. which one do you guys like?
