The Pioneer BDR-209DBK SATA Blu-ray burner is a great choice for a system build or upgrade, with fast writing speed and wide bland media support. It provides up to 16x maximum BD-R writing speed – the fastest on the market – and can read/write single and dual-layer BD-R discs, as well as DVD and CD formats. It's also 3D capable, so you can enjoy the latest 3D blockbusters with compatible displays. The BDR-209DBK drive also 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. All these work together, assuring you of a great experience in both work and play.

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I expected

Pros: Even faster DVD-R writing than my Pioneer DVD burner at same speed settings, Low noise, Solid construction. Works great with RiDATA 6x BD-R inkjet printable . No coasters yet! Haven't been able to create a bad burn... Love this burner, and my Pioneer DVR-218L DVD burner. No un-needed features like quad layer burning.

Cons: Would it kill them to toss in a basic NERO or something?
Costs a bit more than some other brands.

Other Thoughts: I hope Pioneer keeps making quality products like this! It's well worth the few extra dollars. From my experience with other brands like Asus, lite-on... they're a bit cheaper but the Lite on quit ejecting propperly after a while, and the Asus DVD burner was extremely slow to burn a DVD... I got what I paid for in both cases... I'm fine with the idea that this drive could eventually be sub-par. I do not expect to burn any bd-xl or other expensive/ not yet existant media any time soon.

5 out of 5 eggsPioneer BDR-209DBK

Pros: Drive functions perfectly, is quite, and was easy to install. The price of this drive for the Pioneer quality you receive is amazing. It has been great so far for its intended purpose of ripping my Blu-ray collection to my DLNA server. I am amazed how much quieter it is then the older DVD burner I installed it directly under. In order to hear this drive I basically have to put my head next to it. The older DVD drive could be heard from the next room over when running at full speed.

Cons: Not really a con, but it is an OEM bare drive. No cables, mounting screws, or software are included. For the cost savings it is a no brainier though.

Other Thoughts: When I originally built my current system Blu-ray burner drives were $200+ and I couldn't justify it. I am really glad they have fallen to the point were you can buy a name brand like Pioneer at such an affordable rate.

1 out of 5 eggsUnit Died within 3 months

Pros: Good while it lasted, but didn't get much of a chance to use it.

Cons: Died within 3 months. Pioneer website list will not allow me to select unit from list of items for warranty repair. Will have to call during business hours to see how to return this unit for repair. Unable to find valid contact info for contacting Pioneer for computer disk drives.

5 out of 5 eggsBest BD ever made.

Pros: I was one of the first to buy one almost 2 years age, and its used almost every day, and I am picking up another today.

Using Linux K3b you can do anything you like in BD so much not room to list on this page, and no need for drivers using K3b.

Cons: None at all

Other Thoughts: Pioneer is the best BD made.

5 out of 5 eggsBDR-209DBK

Pros: The person that rated this item too low was his own error and not reflect to its performance. This is a bare item so there are no software or hardware included.. This unit is superb and very smooth on what it does. I installed the media suite by Cyberlink 12 and it works great and also the other with media suite 10 and it is also great combination.

Cons: None. Nada.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this unit.
