Obviously Pioneer thought that to release a drive containing the number 13 was going to be unlucky, and then to release a drive with the number 14 would make them look superstitious. So now we have the Pioneer 115D 20X DVD writer on the horizon and its moving fast. In fact its moving at 20X on both DV+R and DVD-R and 10X on dual layer. So rather than leading the race it looks like they are just keeping up with the competition. Having said that lets hope this new drive will not feature the bugs, so easily swept under the carpets, that blighted the 112D in it’s earliest incarnations.
Pioneer – please make sure it burns CD’s this time.
