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.

    Pioneer BDR-2209 reviews

    BDR-2209 16x Internal Blu-Ray / DVD Writer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Optical Drive. 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blu-Ray for my MacPro 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! I bought a new computer and I burn cd's to play in my car. the burned cd's would not play in my car cd player but said error. I was disappointed and could not figure out why this was happening. I even bought a new dvd \ cd burner by a company that used to make the best. Then the cd's would play sometimes. I read the reviews of this drive which said it burned without errors and purchased it. Problem resolved and the burned cd's sound better than from any burner I have ever used. I also upgraded to a blue ray player and burner at the same time so what more could you ask for?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands Down Better Than LG. Love Pioneer! I've had an LG cd/dvd/Blu-ray burner every time I build a new machine. They're cheap and they work most of the time. But, they're difficult to get technical support and firmware is a mess!!! I decided to spend a little more (or more than usual) for this Pioneer BDR-2209. Smooth and easy to use. LOVE IT! I'm tired of buying stuff that's cheap in price and quality and having it breakdown after less than a year. Pay a little more for better quality that'll last for a very, very long time. I'm never going to buy LG. Pioneer makes some great and durable electronics!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used to create and restore system image. I use this for making system images (backup) of Win 7 Pro.� Works great.� I use the Win 7 backup utility to make the system image... so I do not use the software included with this item, although it is installed. Saved me from corruption caused by the combination of a bad windows update, and previously installed software apparently incompatible with that update. I now make a system image before applying any windows updates.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality Product at a Fantasticly Low Price This product has performed just as it should. Works perfectly with Windows 10 if installed properly and this is quite simple to do. First remove the optical drive you are replacing the install the BDR-2209. Check the computers bios to see that the motherboard has recognized the change in optical drives. Once the motherboard has recognized change do a Windows update. Go into the computers OS settings to see that Windows 10 has recognized the new drive. Once Windows 10 has recognized the drive install the accompanying software and you are off to the races. Blazingly fast runs perfectly and to this point has run any type of media format I have thrown at it. Terrific value for a top shelf product, I am real happy that I found B&H Photo there is a new 4D television in the near future coming from B&H Photo. Thanks again B&H for the excellent customer service keep up the great work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pioneering Technology 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.
