Sony vs Pioneer
on Jan 19, 2003 at 12:32:35 pm

Have not seen much comment re the new Sony DRU-500A DVD+RW/DVD-RW burner; does the format flexibility not put it ahead of the Pioneer?
Sony also now advertises a 4x upgrade for the +R.
Thanks, Dan

I would say that having the ability to choose between (-) and (+) would put it ahead of any (-) or (+) drive, it's up to you to decide if you want to spend the extra $$. I haven't seen any benchmark results, so I would guess that the speed of the drive is very similar to other drives.

Sony's website says +RW=2.4X;+R=2.4X;-RW=2X;-R=4X

also there is a software upgrade (free) to take +R to 4X.

One question. If Sony has decided to enter the -R/-RW market, why hasn't Pioneer and company released a +R/+RW counterpart if +R/+RW is a way to go? hmmm... I am wondering if the + capability will be worth the extra $40 to have???

gettin' close to buying something....
