News: Pioneer introduces its first SATA DVD burner
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.
