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).
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.
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 comparable drives.
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.
A Smarter Drive
Pioneer drives with Auto Quiet mode, monitor how they are being used and adjust their speed automatically. Speeds are increased for data transfers and reduced for music or movie playback.
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 rive reread obscured data to extract the original music as accurately as possible.
Cyberlink Software Included
PowerDVD 10 delivers enhanced playback quality for Blu-ray and DVD movies on a PC and upscales standard-definition content to look better on HD displays.
PowerDirector 10 allows you to easily edit and author your home videos to Blu-ray or DVD, or upload them to social media sites.

        I bought this unit for my Media Center PC, Windows 8.1 / XBMC. The drive was delivered fast and was very careful packaged. No damage on arrival. The unit is very well built. Installation in my Media Center PC was easy and so was the installation of the Media Software which came with the unit. The drive was detected by Windows 8.1 with no problems and I was able to play movies without any additional driver install. When playing DVD or Blu-Ray movies the drive spins up fast and makes no noise during play. The burn speed to DVD-R and BD-R Blu-Ray is very fast. I am satisfied with this Blu-Ray drive. I found nothing which is not great. I would recommend this product and I will buy it again when the need arises.

          New condition, light weight unit when upacking. Easy install, Win 7 Pro 64 indentified it quickly. Read and write as expected. Problem so far Windows is the only driver allowing the burning of disc. No full control over burn process with Windows. Had very bad freezes duringing reformatting and unable to copy or backup personal files unless with Windows. Nothing wrong with the burner.

          We needed to deliver Blu-Ray for a documentary premiere for a client. This is exactly what we needed for our MacPro. You just need to remove the drive face-plate to work correctly in the Mac... but they designed it to come off easy and it worked perfectly. We used Toast 11 with this product and burned a Blu-Ray in no time, with a custom menu.

              I owned the previous generation Blu-Ray/DVD Writer (BDR-205) and loved it, so when building my new computer, I upgraded to the BDR-2209 for more speed and capacity. I mostly use it for large video data backups.

              If your like me, you appreciate opulence when it comes to audio and video. When looking at audio and video electronics, I compare everything to Pioneer as the standard and beyond... I'm blown away with the awesome performance and features of the BDR-2209, it reads, it writes, it burns, slices, and dices at 16X! Installing this bad boy in my computer was easy, no hiccups, Blu-ray software install was a breeze. The visuals I'm getting are clear and sharp as one would expect with a top of the line optical drive. Pioneer has a winner with the BDR-2209, it's an awesome piece of kit... Get one!

              One more additional thing I would like to mention, is the evident care and concern that B&H put into the shipping of my purchase. It arrived within 5 days, and was packaged surprisingly well, which is a real big deal to me when purchasing items online... I shook the box and couldn't feel or hear the item josseling or moving around, opening it was like opening a Christmas present in July! Wrapped in the proper media and packaged snuggly in it's shipping box, it was as if it was B&H's way of saying..."Thank You For Shopping With B&H"... They definitely earned a loyal customer here.

                      This is a great Blu Ray player/ writer made by a quality manufacturer. It includes the software to play blu ray movies and edit your videos. It is very quiet.
                      The player was shipped quickly and arrived in 3 days.
                      I'm very happy with my purchase.
