Excerpt: I bought this drive from Ebuyer, it installed fine but once I started using it, the problems began. Firstly, burning failed thrice over on a standard XP Media Center PC, I tried with several types of DVDs and none of them worked, it failed to read DVDs and CD reading was poor, Audio CDs played back with awful quality.
Excerpt: I bought a black version of the Pioneer DVR111-DBK to replace my aging ASUS CD-RW drive, which couldn't even read DVDs. The Pioneer looked a bargain at just £25 and so I picked it up, not really expecting that much. Looks The drive looks great, and fits in perfectly with my black case. Its very simple, with just a green LED to show the usage, the tray itself, a button and an emergency eject hole. This makes the drive look sophisticated and worth a lot more than £25!
Excerpt: i have been a loyal customer of pioneer writers for a while now. the Pioneer DVR 111D is a must have for anyone not wanting to spend a fortune on a dvd writer without compromise on reliability. i have used this now for 3 weeks and have not had any failed discs or bad burns. im using nero 7 and ive tried it with other programs such as clone dvd and dvd shrink. for most discs i purchase ones that contain the go5 dye and burn at 8 speed.
