In fact, for what I’ve been reading and seeing I’m tempted to say that it's one of the best DL burners on the market.
Maybe with final version of firmware 1.04 they can solve some of the problems and fine tune Autostrategy. This new technology seems real interesting. Once working as it should it's a real advantage and maybe worth those extra $ or € (in my case).
And of course, you have 109 that if it keeps pioneer tradition it will also be a very nice drive.
I'm strating to be very confuse and ancious to chose my next burner...
Hrm... with the drive's autostrategy now, doesn't that make personal scans of DVDR media even more useless then before, since results will vary that much MORE??
It *IS* good to see it has some redeeming feature... but being a good dual layer burner means next to nothing, when single layer media is still used more then 1000:1 compared to dual layer (that's a conservative estimate, it's probably closer to 100,000:1)
