Pioneer Japan has finally announced their new top of the line DVD writers. Like the DVR-116 and DVR-216, the DVR-A16J and DVR-S16J feature 20x DVD±R, 12x DVD-RAM and 12x DVD±R DL writing speeds and Pioneer's Optimal Write Speed function. They also have the sweet looking bezel design that those of us outside of Japan no longer get and support for Labelflash.
