This comment is for the Pioneer DVR-112D. I just bought it today for one main reason. To see if this is THE drive that will finally read all my bad movie DVD's and other bad media. This drive fu**ing rocks! If you have very scratched, dirty or poorly written media (perhaps at too high of a speed) or simply cheap media then this is the drive to get.
I've bought 3 brand new drives before this one over the course of 2-3 years. They were all the latest drives at the time and none of them could copy these dvd's, but the DVR-112D did without a problem! Not a single error or skipped sector either! It simply slowed down to reading at 2X and voila! I've even tried these dvd's in other pc's using different drives...none would copy them! The closest to copying them (copied the most sectors) was my old Toshiba SD-1612 DVD-ROM (not DVD-RW).
I'm so happy you wouldn't believe. And I'm not some newbie who just figured something out...I'm a professional pc technician for 10 years now. I've tried many different drives with these movies and not one of them would copy my poorly written dvd's of over 300 movies. The poorly written dvd's is thanks to cheap dvd blanks I bought during that time...which worked fine for a couple of months and then must've quickly deteriorated.
I've tried other drives that people have praised because it could copy bad dvd's...I even ordered one from eBay just because I listened to them. But not even that one would copy my dvd's (Lite-On DVD-ROM).
So I can't say enough about this Pioneer drive. I wanted to share my joy with this drive because it deserves all the credit. It beats any DVD-RW's out there hands down! Way to go Pioneer!! I wish I would've bought it sooner instead of trying drives from Samsung, NEC, and LG. And the drive was only $32+tax (CDN).
Go ahead and try it. I dare you to tell me you couldn't copy a bad disc!!
Oops! Spoke too soon! Just found a disc it couldn't copy without skipping sectors. Still, it copied other discs that no other drive could copy.

The current genuine Pioneer firmware is up to 1.22 as of August. Mine came with 1.21 just this last week and has been upgraded to 1.22
Not used a hacked one yet to region free it as I did the DVR-109D. Region locking is not legal here in Australia for "desktop" DVD players and it shouldn't be legal for computer drives either.

Will not sense certain disk types (Both sides metal finish).

Just bought a DVR-112D (to upgrade from the 109) and see by the chart at http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pio/pe/images/portal/cit_3424/426554178R12_MediaSpeeds.pdf
that it should write CMC DVD+R DL at 8X, I just bought a pack of Philips 8X certified DVD+R DL (media code CMC MAG D04) and they are only recognized as 2.4X. The burner came with firmware rev. 1.09, I upgraded to 1.15 and still no better. I'm very disappointed to say the least.

The drive is just as good as the PIONEER 111 series. It can provide bitsetting to dvdrom for DVD+R single layer dvd media. by using "The Dangerous Brothers" hacked firmware. It's not as superb as my Benq 1620, 1640, 1650 & 1655 drives. But it is much better than the 18x Liteon drives that are on the market at this time. I would have given it a 10 if it had factory bitsetting to dvdrom for DVD+R single layer media instead of using a hacked firmware. Beware that using the hacked firmware will void the original PIONEER warranty.

I bought this to replace my dead Benq 1640 and I found it as good as the 1640 if not better, especailly burning some rubbish media, only downside is it don't have book type bitsetting DVD+R to DVD-ROM, otherwise I'll give it a ten.
