Pioneer DVR-SK12D Review

5 November 2003
  • Excerpt: We cannot argue that the Pioneer drive is great to look at and it would score a 9/10 on the coolness factor alone, but the poor CD-R write times leave something to be desired, at least on the desktop computer side. If you mainly use your laptop computer, then you are probably already used to the slower read/write times since laptops are behind desktops on the recordable CD/DVD side. Overall we were satisfied with the performance of Pioneer’s drive.
  • Pros: Supports both FireWire and USB 2.0, very slim and stylish
  • Cons: Slow CD-R/RW recording times, no support for Apple operating systems, cannot run off the laptops battery
