Summary: I wanted to do disk-to-disk duplication, among other things, with the Mac Pro I bought. I thought dollar-for-dollar this Pioneer would deliver the performance I was looking for. Now, years later I know it does. While the burner chosen by Apple has gone South (no longer burning DL-DVDs, barely burning anything else and really only used for playback), this Pioneer just keeps going and going and going. You need a burner? Buy this one, you'll be glad you did.
Summary: the unit I've received was working mostly fine, but had issues with DL. I had to re-flash the firmware, which required a bit of research. All in all does the job, but required a bit of elbow grease to get it right.
Summary: After eight years of using my pioneer DVD recorder and finally gave out. If this new one last long as the old one I will have gotten my money's worth they sell great products and am very pleased
Summary: Unit received quicker than was expected. Good News. I installed product according to directions and it has been great. Finally have a working DVD writer installed in my computer. Thanks again for quick service and providing a quality product. Oh, fabulous price too.
A breath of fresh air after hp and lite-off..I mean on

Summary: This drive has been a rock solid investment as I've had it for over a year with no problems. Of course it may die yet but I don't use it heavily so it meets my needs just fine. I have tried hp and Lite-on and will say they are terrible.
Summary: CD's burned on this drive will not play on any older CD players. Bought two and both did the same thing. Called Pioneer and they said if in warranty send them or otherwise I needed to buy new ones. Never offered and explanation to why burned disk would not play on older CD players. Solved the problem by getting a HP burner. All is good now.
