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.

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.

4 out of 5 eggsThree different model numbers in one!

Pros: Supports BDXL and was able to read/play a 3D Blu-Ray disc.

Cons: The retail box for this item will list the model number as BDR-2209, the drive itself will have a label with model number BDR-209UBK and when the drive is installed Windows will report the drive as model BDR-209M.

Other Thoughts: Are you confused yet? Took off one star.

5 out of 5 eggsModel Number Confusion Solved

Pros: Handles more BD formats than any other Pioneer BD Burner.

Cons: Confusion exists about the advertised model number (BDR-2209) being different than the physical number on shipping drives (BDR-209UBK).

Other Thoughts: The confusion comes from Pioneer shipping drives with a model number of BDR-209UBK in BDR-2209 retail boxes. The BDR-209UBK model number is CORRECT for the BDR-2209 package. Not to be confused with the BDR-209DBK, the BDR-209UBK is compatible with a few more BD formats, specifically in the BDXL realm. The confusion stemmed not only from the different numbers, but the fact that Pioneer's website didn't acknowledge the BDR-209UBK model number as recently as July 27, 2014. At least as of today, July 31, 2014, a BDR-209UBK query on Pioneer's website now returns the BDR-2209 retail package.

KUDOS and 5 Eggs to NewEgg for probably being the e-retailer that brought this issue to Pioneer's attention and dispelling the myths and concerns that were swirling around this otherwise solid offering.

4 out of 5 eggsBeware - Check Device Manager

Pros: Looks like a great product - did not get what I ordered so can't really comment.

Cons: see - Other thoughts

Other Thoughts: I received a BDR-209M in the BDR-2209 box. The box appeared to be previously opened but I did not think it would be a problem if the drive worked. I checked device manager and it showed the BDR-209M device which is not the same as the BDR-2209. Great, now I need to remove from computer and send back since the BDR-2209 is no longer available. I gave it 4 eggs based on other reviews as I don't want to knock product for shipping error and just wanted to give others a heads up. If your box does not appear new - check Device Manager and make sure you have what you ordered.
