Pioneer DVR-108 16x Dual Layer DVD+/-RW Drive Review

3D Xtreme
20 September 2004
  • Summary: The winners of each catagory are shown in white. What amazed us here is that the 4x Liteon Drive delivers the fastest ripping time, while the Pioneer DVR-108's ripping time was just outright aweful. We ran this test a few times and even updated the firmware, but the Pioneer drive just couldn't rip the DVD any faster. However looking at the write speeds we can see the Pioneer completely blew every other piece of hardware away!

  • Conclusion: Pioneer DVR-108 DL Recorder - Page 22 Conclusion The Pioneer is one of the first 16X ±R recorders to support the 4X DL writing speed with existing 2.4X DVD+R DL media. The writing time to burn a DL disc at 4X is reduced by 38.43%, while the writing quality is very good and the DVD-ROM booktype promises maximum compatibility with DVD players. The used writing method for DVD projects (Z-CLV), won't give the highest recording speeds and the lowest recording times.

  • Excerpt: Voilà un graveur performant qui copie prématurément un peu trop vite faute des médias disponibles dans le commerce ! Le modèle interne DVR-108 de Pioneer remplit un DVD+R de 4.3 Go en 7 mn 15 à la cadence théorique de 16x sur DVD+R (7.8x en pratique). Toutefois,  les médias DVD+R certifiés 16x se font plus que discrets dans les rayons des revendeurs. Ce graveur copie à la même vitesse sur des médias DVD-R.

  • Summary: Подведем итоги. Судя по результатам тестирования привод получился достаточно удачным, поддерживающим максимальные скорости записи при работе с DVD носителями и достаточно высокие скорости при работе c СD. Не смотря на высокие скорости записи DVD носителей, в большинстве случаев, качество записи получается достаточно высокое, но, к сожалению, при использовании некоторых DVD носителей уровень ошибок достаточно высокий.
