what went wrong

M. Beauchamp, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: We have 2 pioneer 118 series dvd writers and they are sound as a pound. Their replacement ie this model, gave up after hardly any use and it seems I am not the only one to experience a high failure rate. Lead free solder perhaps... but I went for Pioneer for their previous good reputation. Not sure what to suggest as most other 'brands' were inferior to Pioneer up till now.. Plextor perhaps.. One positive remark...Amazon paid for return and gave full refund...

I marked the Pioneer down due to the lack of support and the poor software provided

Mr. Graham E. Jappe, Amazon

  • Summary: The Pioneer DVR-S19LBK 24x Internal DVDRW says it has an Up to 24x write for DVD±R discs - take this as a nominal figure assumedly obtained under laboratory conditions as mine has never reached the 24x speeds. This maybe due to the inefficient 2MB buffer memory, come on boys! 2MB buffer is nothing in this day and age of computing. And the Serial ATA is 2.6 interface, so nothing balsitic here then!

It works

  • Summary: It does the job but it is a bit noisy. I have found that in achi mode it runs a lot slower then in IDE. Although the whole computer seems to perform better in IDE mode.

Pioneer DVR-S19LBK 24x Internal DVDRW Retail SATA

Mr. B. Wicks "Mac Man", Amazon
19 February 2013
  • Summary: In the beginning this product seemed ok, about a month down the line I started to get burn failures for no apparent reason, I use and have used for many years Verbatim DVD-R with the Taiyo Yuden dye as this media I find compatible with all DVD players & burners I have used. The next fault I have found is mainly when playing back shop bought DVD films the noise is horrendous the only way I can describe it, go back to when you was a kid with a push bike, to make it sound...

Faults after 6 months.

A R Hartley "Monkey", Amazon

  • Summary: At first i was happy with this drive after upgrading from a Sony Optiarc drive which really didnt need upgrading. Access times and writing times are fast and on par with most DVDRW drives out there and its quiet enough for what it does. Setup was easy as most stuff is now, simple plug and play and Windows 7 picked it up without problems.

Well, that didn't last long!

E J Murray, Amazon
18 November 2012
  • Summary: Having been disappointed with Sony Optiarcs and LGs, I expected success with Pioneer. This one lasted 10 months before it decided to kill itself, and now I've got to go through all the rigmarole of sending it back. I'm beginning to wonder about quality control in the Far East.
