Pioneer DVR-112 DVD-RW Drive



Overall the Pioneer DRV-112 is a solid drive. It faired well throughout the tests and has proven itself more than capable of catering to those who prefer less noise. With the drive available in 3 different fascia plate colours it will match up to nearly any case that you would find today. The fact that it's IDE shouldn't deter you either, as it still beats the tested SATA drive in some aspects.

Circling the £20 mark from Komplett and Tekheads the price is on par with every other quality burner on the market.


Overall Performance is good
Good price


Poor radom access time
Does give out some rather odd noises.

Recommended Award

Thanks to Pioneer for providing this sample.

Kemp, how are the files stored on the discs ? I mean as opposed to the regular DVD format of VIDEO_ folder with vital stuffs in it etc.

If it`s the same/similar, I don`t see why the resolutions are limited.Quote
