The Pioneer DVR-A07XL and DVR-A08XL have a honeycomb pattern on the top.

No, only the XL models have this. Retail 107D (aka A07D) or retail 108 (aka A08) models don't have the honeycomb pattern. XL models are pretty much only available retail boxed while you can find standard versions commonly sold in bulk, retail, or rebadged (OEM) variations.

You don't notice the noise as much when you are looking at the honeycomb pattern :wink: :lol:
