PIONEER PDR-W739

stil-16, Ebay
29 October 2010
  • Summary: I own 3 Pioneer PDR-W739 CD Player/Recorders, with the 4th one on the way. Before buying one of these units, you need to ASK A FEW QUESTIONS, & you need to know HOW THESE UNITS WORK. The last unit I bought was suppose to be in perfect working order. IT WAS NOT!! These units can become jammed up very easily IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO OPERATE THEM. Pioneer Corp used MECHANICAL SWITCH'S insted of ELECTRONIC SWITCH'S, to save money.

CD Recorder

reel_audio, Ebay
26 January 2010
  • Summary: Liked the OEM brand. Decided to buy based on listing that stated the Record Side of the unit was operational. It was not. Hope to make repairs. This is one of the better "home" CD Recorders. Writes to "audio" or "music" CD media only.

not good enough

11 July 2007
  • Summary: This unit belongs to the Elite series that pioneer began to sell around the year 2000, so it was more expensive than the regular cd recorders. In my case I purchased this item on january 2002 and I was surprised with the quality of sound, very crisp! remember this machine record at 24 bits by second but after 3 years of continous use, I noticed regular mistakes in the recorded cd's, first: the laser could not read the last songs, second: some songs showed unusual louded...

Just Plain Reliable!

Dandan, Amazon
24 May 2007
  • Summary: I purchased the Pioneer PDR-W739 CD Recorder on April 16 of 2007 and it has performed very well. I won't go into the details of operating the unit (that's what the instructions are for, right?), but I will state a few positive and not so positive aspects of this recorder. Just load a CD/R in the right tray, determine what source you want to use (the unit's own 3-Tray CD player, or another digital or analog source), and start recording.

Terrible Product From A Great Company

R. Meyers, Amazon
11 November 2002
  • Summary: How can a company that has historically made so many great products make such a total piece of junk? I have had this CD recorder for a year and a half. It is currently at a repair shop in the hope that they can fix the CD loading tray from constantly jamming and eating CDs. I'm not holding my breath because the folks at Pioneer are totally uncooperative about fixing the problem.

good, but not great

arnaldo munguia, Amazon
22 March 2002
  • Summary: I have had this for about one year, and it has only one mechanical flaw - an occasional failure to shut down after finalizing (I just turn off the unit for a second - then it's ok). GOOD POINTS: the skip ID is invaluable for getting rid of mistakes recorded on CD-Rs; the volume control has a wide range and a knob (far superior to the Phillips model it replaced); the program mode is moderately easy to use and greatly speeds up making mix CDs; excellent data readouts.

  • Summary: We ordered the unit direct from pioneer. They forgot to send item. We called and they shipped unit??? Didn't show. Called and they sent one. Oh, it didn't work. Called pioneer... No refunds! We were told to return product for exchange. We were worried at this point. Managed to contact Shelly Williams, Sr Parts Order Correspondent with pioneer at 1-800-421-1605.

beware

MadFatChickKiller "Science advances one funer..., Amazon
17 July 2001
  • Summary: I saw that this unit has problems with the 3Disc changer. At the store, the display model broke in front of my eyes. The changer drawers would not open. We opened a new box and the drawers did not break, but they had a mind of their own. I seemed to look past this for the most part. I went home with a third unit that was also unopened. My unit seems to be ok so far.
