The successor of the popular DVR-110 series, the DVR-111 / DVR-111D DVD burners from Pioneer are expected to be released in Europe soon after mid-March. The device writes a full DVD disc in less than six minutes.
In short, there are two main differences between the DVR-111/111D and
its former version the DVR-110/110D. In the first place, the upper chassis has been redesigned in order to further reduce noise vibration from the drive.
The DVR-111D adopts 5X reading for DVD-RAM, whereas the DVR-110D would
only read DVD-RAM at 2X speed.
Finally, the DVR-111 still remains at a 5X speed for read / write with DVD-RAM which is the same as the DVR-110.
Pioneer also plans to launch a retail version of the DVR-111 series,
dubbed the DVR-A11XL (XLA = beige, XLB = black, XLC = silver).
It is likely that Pioneer USA, China, Australia and Japan will be
introducing the DVR-A11XL (retail version) possibly at the same time,
although Pioneer Europe had decided to stop its retail drive business since the DVR-A08XL. Both the DVR-111 and DVR-111D drives will be OEM/bulk versions, which means
that they will come as bare drives only with no retail box and software.
