Avault heeft een review gepost van de Pioneer DVD-103S DVD drive:
Pioneer seems to sell their CD-ROM and DVD-ROM products to the OEM market, so you probably won't find one in a retail store unless packaged by Hi-Val. Plenty of on-line stores sell the product, usually with the option of buying a hardware DVD decoder board. I purchased the unit from Hi-Val's online store sans decoder board so I could experiment with various software DVD decoders. The plain white box contents consisted of a single-connector IDE cable, an audio cable for connecting to a soundcard, mounting screws, a disk with DOS drivers, the drive itself, a Pioneer manual, plus an Installation and User's Guide written by Hi-Val. The Guide is really a generic one meant to cover CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, and even CD recorder setup, and contains enough information to do just that. Installation went without a hitch, with the DVD-103S installed as the Master (and only) device on the Secondary IDE bus on the test machine. Windows 95 and 98 have a driver that supports the drive, leaving no need for the DOS driver provided.
