Pioneer A08 burner

Hey guys thought you might like this
Quote:
We haven't heard from Pioneer in a bit but now they're back: the A08 burner, scheduled to ship later this month in Japan, offer 16x DVD±R burning, and 4x DVD+R DL burning, making it the fastest burner for DVD-R and DVD+R DL discs. DVD±RW can be written at the usual 4x (which makes me wonder about 8x capabilities other manufacturers have announced - could this be a strategic move as Pioneer is a DVD- backer?), and CD-R/W burning speed is still lacking behind the competition with 32x/24x (unless you compare the drive to NEC's offering which is also not quite up-to-date on CD burning speeds)

Ditto! Very interesting there, Pop Smith.
I think Pioneer is gonna try to corner the market for short bit, although it wont take the competition much time to match it. Especially once they hack the new release and make a version of their own. btw NEC dont really count
Hmmm...Do they make DVD media to support that speed yet?
I know the Ritek G04's I'm using are only 4x

You could always sell it on ebay and buy yourself a new one
You should be able to get what you need for a new one if you wanted too that is. I guess it depends on the need versus the hassle.
