The BDR-206MBK BD/DVD/CD Burner is the world’s first BDXL computer drive.

Overview

This revolutionary new product can write up to 128 GB on a single BDXL Quad Layer disc (equal to 27 single layer DVDs), or up to 100GB on a single BDXL Triple Layer disc. This computer drive allows users to play Blu-ray movies as well as author high-definition Blu-ray DiscTM content while also delivering the ability for high-capacity data storage. The drive can read BD-ROM discs; read and write to triple, dual, and single layer BD-R and BD-RE discs; read DVD-ROM discs; and read and write to most DVD and CD recordable media formats.

Pioneer has also incorporated proprietary technologies in this Blu-ray burner to significantly improve recording and playback quality. Its Limit Equalizer technology improves RF signals generated when reading data from Blu-ray Discs and enables improved playback capability. Along with a new, airtight structure that helps keep the drive quiet and protects against contaminants and dust particles, the Disc Vibration Stabilizer feature helps protect the disc from warping during the writing process, resulting in a higher quality written disc.

The BDR-206MBK comes with Cyberlink software comprised of PowerDVD, PowerDirector®, and Power2Go®.  PowerDVD provides high quality playback of Blu-ray and DVD movies.  PowerDirector has advanced and powerful tools to capture, edit, produce and author high-definition home movies to Blu-ray Disc or standard-definition movies to DVD.  PowerDirector also makes it easy to upload home videos to social media websites.  Power2Go allows users to backup or share files on BDXL1, Blu-ray, DVD, or CD media.  With BDXL's high storage capacity (128GB or 100GB), less discs are needed and the data will be secure.

 

Drive Features

Store more data
…Up to 156% more data storage capacity than a 50GB Dual Layer Blu-ray Disc. The BDXLTM format supports BDXL Blu-ray media (including 128GB Quad Layer (QL) and 100GB Triple Layer (TL) Blu-ray DiscTM).
A quieter drive
With a new redesigned disc tray structure, the airflow in our drives is smoothed and operational noise reduced. Enhancements such as tunnel-like air intakes and ducts, plus a new smoother interior to the drive suppress noise and provide a quieter experience.
An eco-friendly drive
Smaller packaging - saves resources and fuel for transportation.
 
Increased life excpectancy
The sound barrier design that traps noise inside the drive also works to keep dust outside the drive. This makes the newly developed drive much more dust resistant than previous models and drive failure due to dust is practically nonexistent.
 
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.
 
Top quality writing
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.
