Pioneer DVR-A08XLA 16x DVD±RW review @ CDRLabs.com

Posted at 20 December 2004 19:55 CET by DoMiN8ToR
Ian from CDRLabs took some time to test a Pioneer DVR-A08XLA and posted the results on his website. This drive in an enhanced version of the Pioneer DVR-108 and features some of the fastest DVD reading and writing speeds available such as 16x DVD-R and DVD+R and 4x DVD+R dual layer. Overall the drive perfomed pretty well: Like some of the other DVD writers we've looked at recently, the DVR-A08XL can write to both DVD+R and DVD-R media at 16x. At this speed, it took the drive less than 7 minutes to write an entire 4.7GB DVD. While a big improvement over Pioneer's 8x DVD±RW, it wasn't nearly as fast as the CAV enabled writers from NEC and MSI. Nevertheless, the DVR-A08XL performed pretty well with other types of recordable media. The drive had no problems holding its own with DVD+RW and DVD-RW media and, thanks to its 4x DVD+R DL writing speed, it took less than 27 minutes to burn an entire 8.5GB DVD. Nevertheless also this drive isn't perfect and has some things that deserve some extra attention of the Pioneer engineers. If you would like to find these out and want to read the entire review then head over to CDRLabs. Our review on this drive can be found here, discuss this drive in our Pioneer Forum.
