Any problems with slot-feed Pioneer DVD ??
Has anyone heard of problems with dust and dirt getting inside the slot-feed Pioneer 16X DVD drives?
A system builder told me he did not use them because he suspected this would be a problem. I thought the technology sounded very good though we often donít hear the bad side.
Thanks in advance for your help.
I've got one of those, and it is fine, but i've only had it for it few months. I also have 4-year-old slot-load 32x CDROM and it hasn't had any problems
Ive been using Pioneer's slot loads since they started making them and love them! btw I am a system builder and have not had any problems with dust as the slotloader (pioneer) have a felt like brush that covers the slot that the cd slides thru...thus preventing dust from easily entering the unit. (In other words they have better dust protection than a Tray model would!)
My biggest fear with them was not being able to get a CD out if the drive was dead. I have never had that problem and have built many systems with them.
Thanks everyone for the feedback !!!
Can't add anything about the slot load as I have a tray load... But be warned, the 16X sounds like a jet taking off. At least the tray model does.
The slot-loading drive is very quiet (maybe it's because of my delta 7K RPM fan on my cpu's heatsink?)
Nope. Never any problems.
