The BDR-207DBKS is the drive for you. The BDR-207DBKS drive is perfect for system builders, for those looking to upgrade to a Blu-ray burner, or for those who already have software. 

The BDR-207DBKS is an internal SATA drive. It can burn up to 12x on BD-R (25GB) and BD-R dual layer (50GB) media, which is the fastest write speed available! The drive is also backwards compatible, so it can read and write to most DVD and CD formats. Click on the "Specifications" tab to see all supported media formats, as well as the read and write speeds achievable. 

Want to watch Blu-ray 3D titles? Well the BDR-207DBKS drive is 3D capable. All you need is 3D playback software and a 3D display system and you're ready to go.  

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 as few discs as possible. 
The BDR-207DBKS drive has features such as a QuickStart which enables the disc to be ready 42% 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-207DBKS drive supports a wide range of blank media.

Faster burning
First in the industry to realize 12x writing on BD-R discs, Pioneer can now achieve 12x writing on BD-R Dual Layer (DL) discs.

Watch 3D movies
The drive is 3D capable.  All you need is 3D playback software and a 3D display system. 

Get to your files faster
The amount of time between inserting a disc, and that disc being ready has been reduced by 42%. 

A quieter drive
With our 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  smoother interior to the drive suppress noise and provide a quieter experience.

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.

5 out of 5 eggs1.5 years in

Pros: Great drive. I was a little skittish considering the price. The HCL matched so I went with it. Still working great on DVD and Blu-ray side. Quick clean burns. One firmware update and still going strong. Over 500 burns so far of various media. home movies and pics. ETC. You know. :)

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Would definitely buy again.

3 out of 5 eggsAfter 4.5 Months - RATS!

Pros: For 4 and a half months this was one of the best drives I have ever had. Fast, Reliable, Quite.

If you had asked me during that time whether I would have recommended this drive, I would have given it a 5-star rating.

Cons: I don't know if it's just this one drive or the series, but here is my tale of woe.

2-days ago (just about 4.5 months out of its life) the blue-ray laser died. It started getting power calibration errors when trying to write to Verbatim (and other) media.

I tried other programs from the default Windows 7 burner to ImgBurn. They all erred out with their version of the same message.

I called Pioneer Customer support, and even though their techs said the drive was toast and would go in the scrap pile, they would not send me a new drive until the bad one was received. Further, they have no tracking system and YOU have to pay the postage to send the drive back. No RTM service.

I need a drive and their turn around is "as least 2-weeks", not counting shipping.

I'll probably buy a new drive and when the other gets returned, put it in my build pile.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate on previous review

Pros: It can read optical discs and write the contents to an HDD.
It can install an operating system, as long as you have the disc.

Cons: If you try to burn more than one copy of a BR disc, it slows to the point of taking a full day to write each subsequent disc. Seems to be okay for DVDs, but I use it on an HD video editing machine, and DVDs are not part of the deal.

I returned this unit to Pioneer, and evidently, they can't fix it, and won't even try. The work order sheet had some internal notes that stated they rejected it for being out of warranty... as a non-stock item, which kind of throws Newegg under the bus for selling me a non-stock Blu-Ray burner, if I am to believe this cryptic note. There was no explanation note to me, explaining what they did or the reasons they rejected my RMA, which was initially accepted.

The unit still does not function properly, and it is now back in the shipping box as a reminder for me. Maybe someone can fix it locally, if the cost isn't more than buying a new drive.

The unit still does not function properly, and it is now back in the shipping box as a reminder. Maybe someone can fix it locally, if the cost isn't more than buying a new drive.

Other Thoughts: Pioneer appears to make a good drive, but if you get one with problems, I would suggest having a local repair person fix it rather than wasting time on sending it to Pioneer.

Since I have gotten the unit back, I have tried to contact Pioneer on several occasions, and all have been cut off without completing the communication. Phone calls are shut down when I select the appropriate voice mail option, and the web based emails are chopped when I hit the send button, and I am informed that there was some sort of internal failure, and to try again. All subsequent efforts meet the same fate. So far, I have no evidence they are blocking me, but I sufe can't contact them, anymore.

My conclusion is, if I would ever buy Pioneer equipment again, and it has any kind of problem, I am on my own... no warranty is available. I just wish Newegg had warned me of the factory only warranty situation with this drive... or maybe in larger print.

5 out of 5 eggsPioneer BDR-207DBK BluRay burner

Pros: Just bought this thing - first bluray burner. Got it mostly for backups (and not playing movies). It gets to the point where backing things up onto regular DVDs isn't efficient because you have 10+ gbs of data you want to keep together instead of spanning onto multiple discs. Or you have a bunch of stuff on hard disc you don't want to have to try to recover in the event of a failure. So you go optical, of at all possible, and store/ archive your stuff on ultra-reliable discs.

This is my first bluray burner, but I've had at least a dozen CD/ DVD burners over the years. I've got at least 200+ gbs of data over the years stashed away on DVDs. The Pioneer seems pretty solid - I've already used up twelve discs (PHILIPS BD-R25GB media) backing random stuff like personal files and videos and ebooks, etc. I've been using Nero 10.2 and the Philips discs and haven't had a single failure (yet).

The drive went into a Win7 (x64) machine and it recognized the drive and installed the drivers w/o a hitch. Nero saw the drive and read the discs as 12x and I started burning data - at first at 8x and then at 10x. No issues so far.

I got the bare drive - OEM - since I had power and sata cables in the rig already. No software, but that's not a problem because I wasn't looking to use this as a media player. I can burn 20+ gbs of data in about 40 minutes or so with data verification.

Cons: "I canna make it go any faster, cap'n!"

Other Thoughts: Well packaged when shipped.

5 out of 5 eggsPlays blu-ray movies and comes with software

Pros: One of the quietest disc drives I have ever used
Pioneer drives are very good
Comes with software

Cons: PowerDVD ends up turning off Aero. Still works, but it's very annoying
Different black than the standard PC black

Other Thoughts: I got this for the brand name, not for Blu-ray burning. I didn't expect it to be this quiet. The software did play Harry Potter just fine despite PowerDVD being clunky. I guess they don't want me to use fraps on it or something.

The noise level makes up for it not matching the PC case's color

Blu-ray playback software by itself costs $100. For me, it was worth the expense to get this writer over the cheapest Blu-ray players

1 out of 5 eggsThe LED nor the drive tray work!

Pros: Well I wish I could have used it for what I needed it to do if only Newegg had sent me a brand new, and functional unit!
But I can't say for certain if it's the Bytecc 5.25" External Enclosure that's the problem, but I've tested a Pioneer SATA DVD Burner drive inside it and that drive works, so after they sent it back to me assuming they fixed it or replaced it after testing the original and the replacement, I still have the same problem after the UPS guy handed me the box the assumed "replacement' was in the first time I initially ordered the Pioneer Bluray Burner drive in the first place!

Cons: I'll make sure I never buy anything from you again!

Upon this unresolved incident, I will immediately deter friends & family away from your business!

My last order of business will be to get a suitable refund because of your mistake(s)!

I will go elsewhere for every single item on my wishlist, and once I've located them all, I'll sever my business with you by deleting my account and with it, my respect for you!

Other Thoughts: All other online PC component retailers, resellers and local or distant PC stores will be given my business instead of me going to you and promoting your supposed "good reputation" and tarnish it forever until you go down as the inconsiderate jerks you really are!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

Pros: Pretty darn good for the price. Bought it on sale for about $90. Burned a Verbatem double layer bluray disk at 8x even though it was a 6x disk. Came with software but the only part I'm using is the part burning disks. Power DVD10 isn't working with bluray disks, but then neither did power dvd9 that came with my LG drive or the full edition of power dvd10. Already have Corel Win DVD pro 11 that plays any media, so oh well.

Cons: None so far.
