£15.99 at Play

Not a true Pioneer made product, this drive is a rebadged QSI drive (Mediatek chipset), and not as good as the previous generations of Pioneer drives with the NEC chipset.

ah the above post would be why i had these newer ones fail quicker makes sense now!

i got it from play for £15.29 or something just before xmas, it's been £15.99 for a while. it was just to upgrade a rarely used drive in an old pc that didn't like a lot of dual layer media.it works fine. considering my first pioneer dvd burner cost £200 about 10 years ago, it's amazing you can get burners at nearly 5% of that price now. play has some at £10.99 at times (SATA), including delivery

labelflash seems to be a waste of time, it's an alternate to lightscribe, but just try finding discs. fortunately it's not something i need

and just to point out this is a PATA/IDE drive for older computers, not SATA. as there isn't much difference in burn speed it's a good way to save your SATA sockets for hardrives if you have a slightly older pc with both IDE and SATA, but newer pc's might not have PATA slots

Pioneer 117/217 was the last true Pioneer drive.
