10 DVD Burners: 16x and Dual-Layer - or Nothing!

Pioneer DVR-A08XLA (DVR-108)

The Pioneer DVR-A08XLA burner, also known as the DVR-108, was the first to offer 16x speed for the DVD-R and DVD+R formats, and dual-layer burning at 4x. We simply updated the firmware to run our tests at 16x. Protection includes Buffer Underrun Protection to avoid problems in the event of an empty buffer.
