The Pioneer BDR-2209 internal SATA Blu-ray burner takes PC optical storage capability to a new level. It provides up to 16x BD-R writing speed – the fastest on the market – and supports virtually the widest range of disc formats, from legacy CD and DVD to the latest BDXL media that can hold up to 128GB data on a single disc. Beyond raw performance, this unit also comes with a rich list of features for optimizing your experience, such as QuickPlay for reducing the waiting time, PowerRead for smooth DVD/Blu-ray movie playback, PureRead2 for accurate audio CD data extraction, and Auto Quiet Mode for better acoustics during operation. And with the bundled CyberLink Media Suite 10, you can watch movies, edit video clips, and write to disc right out of the box; no other software is required.

  • newegg Faster burning Up to 16x writing on BD-R single-layer discs, 14x on BD-R DL discs, and 8x writing on BD-R triple-layer discs. (15x BD-R write speed achieved using certain media.)
  • newegg Store more data Up to 156% more data storage capacity than a 50GB Dual Layer Blu-ray Disc. The BDXL format supports BDXL Blu-ray media (including 128GB Quad Layer (QL) and 100GB Triple Layer (TL) Blu-ray Disc).
  • newegg Get to your files faster With QuickPlay, the amount of time between inserting a ROM disc, and that disc being ready, has been reduced. For movies on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, the disc is ready faster when compared to previous Pioneer drives.
  • newegg Smooth movie playback 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 not able 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.)
  • newegg A better music experience Scratches and fingerprints on your CDs can cause them to skip. A drive normally makes a calculated guess at the unreadable data, and attempts to correct this to match the original music. However this is not 100% accurate. PureRead, when enabled, makes the drive reread the obscured data to extract the original music as accurately as possible. (PureRead2 is not guaranteed to work with all disc conditions or under all PC environments.)
  • newegg A smarter drive Pioneer drives with Auto Quiet mode monitor how they are being used and adjust their speed automatically: high speed for data transfer, and low speed for music or movie playback. The tray cushion and the top cover of the BDR-2209 have also been designed to reduce disc rotation noise, ensuring an optimized experience for watching movies or listening to music.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive / Incomplete Software

Pros: Drive works really well with Windows 8.1 to do archival data back ups on Blu-ray disks. This is the primary reason I bought the drive. To do this I used the windows 8 data copying functions and ignored. Did not use included Cybermedia software to do this.

Cons: Cybermedia software worked poorly on my Windows 8.1 computer and I uninstalled it. I deducted 2 stars for this. My problems. I don't think the codecs of the Blu-ray player was up to date for windows 8.1 and it was an expensive upgrade to a more deluxe version to get it. Some of my other media software (Sony Vegas Suite) suddenly would not work after installing the Cybermedia. As soon as I removed the Cybermedia software all was well.

Other Thoughts: Despite the above problems I bought another one of these drives for my son with the software due to a special on Newegg. Figure I paid about $5 for the software this time which is about what it is worth.

1 out of 5 eggsBig waste of my time

Pros: none

Cons: If your buying to copy your rented Blu-rays.. Forget it. It does not allow it . Must purchase extra expensive software.

Other Thoughts: Anything that sucks this much of my time with no results is RMA'd. Not close to worth the price

5 out of 5 eggsGreat data backup drive

Pros: 1. Quiet
2. Writes SL/DL/TL/QL Blu-Rays though the latter two are terribly expensive and hard to find. Still the SL/DLs store 25GB to 50GB each. Cheap storage and a great backup to my harddrive based backups.
3. CyberLink Power2Go is shipped with the drive. Writes SL/DL/TL/QL and if you're writing a data Blu-Ray, spans discs for large data sets. Just wrote all of our photos and home videos over 6 25GB discs. Worked like a charm. Wrote at 6X.
4. Despite what I read about the BDR-2209, Cyberlink has an option to verify the disc after its written and it worked with the drive. It took a little time to verify but it looked like it was actually doing it over a few minutes.

Cons: None so far. Love this drive.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried it for playing Blu-rays yet, but it ships with CyberLink PowerDVD 10. I don't have a Blu-ray software player for my computer yet and I hope this does it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Blu-Ray writer

Pros: Works great and is quite fast.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: This was a replacement for an ASUS Blu-Ray writer that died within a year, quite annoying really. This new unit actually seems faster and while I've only had it for 3 months works great. I'll reserve the reliability issue for a later date,

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best For Mac Pro Tower 2012.

Pros: Work perfectly inside the Mac Pro 2012 or any Mac Pro Intel Towers.
Just remove the front door of the tray by pushing it out gently,easy.
Go to Youtube and you will see many videos on how to do-it ,easy
Work very well under Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks to create Blu-ray.
Pioneer Burners work better than other brands inside Mac Pro.

Cons: Just dont forget to Disable Put Hard-Drive to Sleep when possible in Preferences.

Other Thoughts: Newegg after a few buy have become a Mac Friendly place to by in Canada.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Drive, no 3D Playback Software

Pros: Works well, haven't burned any discs yet, but it's reading like a champ. The software included plays 2D Blu-rays fine.

Cons: I got the impression from another review that this includes the version of Power DVD 10 that does 3D. It does NOT. So you still have to pay a ton of money if you want to get 3D playback if you get this drive.
