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.
Running out of hard drive space? Afraid of losing your valuable files when your hard drive crashes? With Blu-ray BD-R dual layer (DL) discs, you can store the equivalent of 10 single layer DVDs. Now you can have a backup you can trust and with fewer discs. With M-DISC support, you can now back up your files with fewer discs than ever before.
The BDR-212DBK drive has features such as a QuickPlay which enables movies discs to be ready faster, a Noise Suppression design to minimize noise, an Anti-Dust design to increase durability, and Precision Writing Technology to minimize write errors. And of course being a Pioneer drive, the BDR-212DBK drive supports a wide range of blank media.
