- Pioneer DVR-107D Dual 8x +R and -R DVD Recorder

The folks over at CDRLabs have an extensive review up on Pioneer's latest DVD Burner, the 107D. Looks to be more of the 106 goodness, only at double the speed capability! If you do a lot of DVD burning and already have a 4x drive, it may still be worth your while to upgrade seeing as the price of one of these is also very attractive.


To make it all the more appealing, head on over to Techseekers for a nice little surprise.


Pioneer enters the 8x DVD recording market with the new DVR-107D. Being the first 8x DVD burner offering this speed for DVD±R and 4x for DVD±RW, the drive brings the anticipated "balance" in the recording speeds of the +R/RW and the -R/RW formats. With NEC (ND-2500A) and LiteOn (SOHW-812S) as its main competitors in the retail market, the benchmark results of Pioneer DVR-107D would be interesting to most of you.
