Pioneer now has available a burn-everything internal DVD writer with a Sata interface. The unit is offered in beige (DVR-212) or black (DVR-212BK) and being sold to consumers as well as system builders.
Burn speeds are said to be 18x for write-once DVD-R and +R blanks, 10x for two DVD-R DL and +R DL and 12x for DVD-RAM.
As you'd expect, the burner uses Pioneer’s Disc-Resonance Stabiliser technology to control the airflow generated by high-speed disc rotation and minimise disc warping.
Reliable writing and reading are said to be further enhanced by:
* A multi-effect liquid crystal tilt compensator - to "ensure precise writing" to the disc by automatically compensating for discs that are warped or of uneven thickness
* An ultra-dynamic resonance absorber - claimed to reduce the instability and vibrations caused by imbalanced or damaged media
* Performance-adjusting firmware - reckoned to optimise rotation speed to suit the job at hand, for instance holding down disc speed to keep down noise when watching movies or listening to music.
