50% Failure rate in duplicator

James H., Newegg
11 January 2013
  • Summary: After researching these drives I have found pioneer no longer makes these DVR-219BK they are outsourced and as you can expect, they are junk Pioneer is selling their name and now getting a bad rep because of it.
  • Pros: Cheap drive, had pioneers name on it.
  • Cons: Failure rate on disks increases after 100 burns. lost 3 of these drives in 1 of my duplicators and at least 2 in the other duplicator. Makes some coasters for sure.

  • Cons: It's generally more expensive than other competitor’s burners at Newegg. I've seen the price change several times...if you're not in a hurry watch for the price drops.

SATA PLACEMENT MAKES FOR A GOOD DRIVE

Brice G., Newegg
17 February 2012
  • Summary: I am a proud owner of my Pioneer Electronic Devices! Maybe one day Pioneer and AMD will merge and Pure awesomness will overcome the world. I should have been in Marketing. * I almost forgot: Choosing SATA locations is important with newer systems runmning RAID Check installation manuals when...

I know that I have purchased other brands in Home theatre componnents and paid twice the price for them to fail just at the warran...
  • Cons: With a total black face, quiet drive, long lasting performance, What's a Con?
