    I don't know who makes the Pioneer optical drives but I've not heard anything bad about them.
    Slysoft, or any other software, should not have any problems with any optical drive of any brand.

    I think I've heard of a compatibility issue with a certain Samsung model.

    Pioneer does, and I really haven't head too much about the 115 yet.

    No. The SH-S203B is very good (Sata drive). I do not like any other Samsung burners though. The bitsetting issue (that forced people
    to crossflash to Buffalo firmware) with the Pioneer 112 and 212 makes me somewhat leary . . .

    Hi :)
    The Pioneer 115D & 215D are excellent drives.
    Based on NEC chipsets they are built by Pioneer to their own spec.
    Whilst not the fastest in their class, the quality is almost out there on its own.
    As for bitsetting, those who don't want the risk or fuss of crossflashing.
    Can now use ala42's MCSE.
    To achieve bitsetting, rpc1 or speedread patching.
    It is simple one click stuff.
    MCSE also allows write strategy swapping. But that's something else.

    Burning @ upto 20x to give burns like this : -
    Scans like this : -
    TRT's like this : -
    Plus with ala42's MCSE - Auto Bitsetting. ​
