CDRLabs starts the week off with a review of Pioneer's latest 16x DVD±RW, the DVR-A09XL. Offering some of the fastest DVD reading and writing speeds available, the DVR-A09XL is capable of 16x DVD±R, 8x DVD+RW and 6x DVD-RW writing speeds and has a maximum DVD read speed of 16x. More importantly, it's one of the first drives with the ability to write to both DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media at 6x. The DVR-A09XL also includes features like 40x CD reading and writing speeds, 24x rewriting speeds, and reduced operating noise, thanks to Pioneer's Quiet Drive technology.
In this review we'll take a look at some of the features found on the DVR-A09XL and see how it compares to some of the 16x DVD±RW drives from the competition. Does Pioneer's new drive have what it takes? You'll have to read the review to find out.
