Overview

The BDR-XS06 slim slot portable USB 3.0 BD/DVD/CD burner is the next generation Blu-ray Disc burner from Pioneer. The BDR-XS06 has a smooth slot loading mechanism and its silver color matches well with Macbook computers. Corel Toast Lite is included which allows users to burn their valuable files to CD, DVD and Blu-ray Disc. This drive allows users to watch Blu-ray Disc titles and author high-definition Blu-ray Disc content (software not included)1. The drive supports the BDXL format. BDXL supports 128GB Quad Layer and 100GB Triple Layer Blu-ray media. The BDR-XS06 can read BD-ROM discs, read/write to Single, Dual, Triple, & Quad layer BD-R discs, and is backward compatible to read and write to DVD and CD formats. The BDR-XS06 drive is USB powered so no ac adapter is necessary.

The BDR-XS06 also has unique features such as PowerRead™, Auto Quiet mode, and PureRead2+. PowerRead can provide smoother movie playback when a disc has fingerprints or minor surface scratches.  Auto Quiet mode intelligently adjusts the disc rotation speed to reduce noise (useful while watching movies or listening to music), and PureRead2+ automatically adjusts the drive parameters to minimize sound glitches during music playback.   Auto Quiet mode and PureRead can be configured as well as enabled and disabled with the Pioneer BDR-XS06 Drive Utility.  The utility is available for download here.    

The BDR-XS06 measures only 5.3" (W) X 0.7" (H) X 5.3" (D), weighs a mere 9.9 ounces, and also has the ability to be powered directly via USB (no AC adaptor needed).

Drive Features

Store more data
…Up to 156% more data storage capacity than a 50GB Dual Layer Blu-ray Disc. The BDXL™ format supports BDXL Blu-ray media (including 128GB Quad Layer (QL) and 100GB Triple Layer (TL) Blu-ray Disc™).

 

Faster burning
6x2 writing on BD-R single-layer and dual-layer discs.  4x writing on BD-R triple-layer and quad layer discs.

An eco-friendly drive

  • Smaller packaging - saves resources and fuel for transportation.
  • Reduced power consumption on external USB drives which allows for eco-friendly USB bus-powered drives.
Smooth movie playback
Scratches, fingerprints and other abnormalities on the surface of a disc can sometimes cause Blu-ray and DVD movie playback to stop.  When a PowerRead enabled drive is not able to read through obstructed areas of a disc, it will attempt to quickly move forward to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback3.
A smarter drive
Pioneer drives with Auto Quiet mode, monitor how they are being used and will adjust their speed automatically – high speed for data transfer, and low speed for music or movie playback.
A better music experience
Scratches and fingerprints on your CDs can cause them to skip. A drive normally makes a calculated guess at the unreadable data and attempts to correct this to match the original music. However this is not 100% accurate. PureRead, when enabled, makes the drive reread the obscured data to extract the original music as accurately as possible4.
Wide blank media support
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.
