Features

16x1 BD-R Writing and BDXL™ Support

Up to 16x1 writing on BD-R SL discs, 14x on BD-R DL discs, and 8x writing on BD-R TL discs and BDXL support (BD-R XL:Triple Layer 100GB、BD-R XL:Quadruple Layer 128GB、BD-RE XL:Triple Layer 100GB).

A better music experience with PureRead 3+ featuring unique algorithms

When read errors caused by scratches or fingerprints occur when importing (ripping) audio CDs, using this function allows for automatic detection of the disc state, adjustment of the read method using an original algorithm, and then re-reading of the disc. This minimizes error data interpolation.
*Not all discs or all portions of discs may be playable if they are too damaged.

Compatible with high-speed M-DISC writing for long-term data archiving

This product is compatible with M-DISC optical media for archiving, developed by US-based Millenniata Inc. It now also supports 6x writing on M-DISC (BD) SL and M-DISC (DVD).

A front design that combines functionality and a brilliant design

The simple, flat design uses blue LED lighting and a hairline finish that creates a contrasting texture, all while maintaining the quietness and high dust resistance of previous models.

Unique honeycomb construction and cooling structure

This product features a unique honeycomb structure that increases the rigidity of the housing and minimizes unnecessary vibration. It also commutes airflow generated within the housing by the rotation of the disc, circulating it effectively to alleviate the temperature increase in the pickup and disc surface that occurs when the disc is rotated for extended periods or at high speed.

Equipped with Pioneer’s Optimal Write Strategy Prediction Algorithm, which provides stable writing even on discs without write strategy

The drive automatically predicts the optimal write strategy even on discs without write strategy, which is then used for writing. The function provides stable writing.

*XL media (TL / QL) is not supported. Additionally, for some discs it may not be possible to obtain satisfactory writing quality.
*A write strategy is a set of parameters that enables an optical disc drive to write on a specific type of blank media according to its optimum specifications.

Custom Eco function helps reduce the drive's power consumption

If the drive does not receive any commands (instructions for operation) from the PC for a specified period, this function will reduce the drive’s power consumption, such as by stopping the disc from rotating or reducing the disc rotation speed. Shortening this specified period will make the drive enter the power saving mode earlier.

Disc Resonance Stabilizer improves writing accuracy

Disc Resonance Stabilizer utilizes airflow from disc rotation to reduce disc vibration and increase writing accuracy. High speed disc rotation causes disc warping due to resonant vibration. This results in unstable writing quality, especially in the outer areas. The Disc Resonance Stabilizer, designed projection on the top chassis, reduces such errors. By narrowing the interspace between the disc and the top panel, the air flow caused by the high rotation presses and prevents the disc from warping, thereby reducing reading and writing errors. With this feature, stable operation is maintained by handling the three patterns of disc resonant vibration that occur during operation.

Easy Setting function with Drive Utility

Equipped with an Easy Setting function to allow you to set one of four modes according to the intended use.

Entertainment Mode is suitable for enjoying movies and music. It enhances quietness when playing back BD/DVD or music CDs.
High-performance Mode, which emphasizes reading and writing speed
Quality Mode, which emphasizes reading and writing quality
Eco Mode, which reduces maximum power consumption
*This function can be used if the Drive Utility is downloaded and installed.

PowerRead™

PowerRead™ allows smooth playback of dirty or scratched BD/DVD discs. 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 unable to read through obstructed areas of a disc, it will attempt to move forward quickly to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback.
*PowerRead is not guaranteed to work with all disc conditions or under all PC environments.
*PowerRead function requires compatible BD/DVD player software (i.e. PowerDVD).

Peak Power Reducer

This power saving mode enables the drive to suppress power consumption at peak operation. It keeps stable operation in case of drop in power supply.

Improved belt for more stable tray loading operation

The belt used for the tray loading part has been improved to reduce the effect of dust and dirt on the tray loading operation. In our test, resistance to the impact of dust and dirt on tray loading is about 1.8 times that of the previous model.

Region codes

The region code for the drive can be set only five times (including the initial setting). The region code selected with the fifth setting will be locked as the final region code. Accordingly, take care when changing this code. DVD discs that do not have a region code set can be played on players with any region code setting.
