I currently have the Pioneer 107 and love the drive.
I mainly burn 8X -R discs from Prodisc media code F01. I have had no problems with this combination and the movies I have burnt play flawlessly.
A friend of mine was looking into picking up a DVDRW, and I mentioned to sell him my drive for cheap. So if he does pick up my drive, I would like to replace it witht he 109. But the general consensus on the 109 doesnt seem to be that great.
The 109 appeals to me but I would like to know if in fact it burns with P-CAV for 8-16X or not. Again, I would mainly be using 8X -R from Prodisc for the meantime.
I would also be interested in this drive for the DL capability. What is the DL performance on the 109? including DL performance with future firmware upgrades.
