Looking for the fastest drive in the market but already have software? Then the BDR-212DBK is the drive for you. The BDR-212DBK drive is perfect for system builders, for those looking to upgrade to a fast Blu-ray burner, or for those who already have software.The BDR-212DBK is an internal SATA drive. It can burn up to 16x on BD-R (25GB) media and up to 14x on BD-R dual layer (50GB) media, which is the fastest in the market. The drive is also backwards compatible, so it can read and write to most DVD and CD formats.
16x Blu-ray burner! Pioneer can now achieve up to 16x writing on BD-R media and up to 14x on BD-R Dual Layer (DL) discs.
The amount of time between inserting a movie disc, and that disc being ready has been reduced. For movies on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, the disc is ready faster when compared to the BDR-208DBK.
The tray cushion and the top cover of the BDR-212DBK has been designed to reduce disc rotation noise.
The sound barrier design that traps noise inside the drive also works to keep dust outside the drive. This makes the drive much more dust resistant and drive failure due to dust is practically nonexistent.
Pioneer strives to have best in class performance over a wide range of media – our drives achieve this for a large variety of BD and DVD media. Refer to the drive’s media support list for all supported media and the write speed that can be achieved.
Our chassis’ design maximizes disc stability and write quality by reducing warping at high speed caused by disc vibration, especially on the outer areas of the disc.
