Pioneer BDR-XU03 overview

  • 1Description

The BDR-XU03 USB 3.0 BD/DVD/CD Burner from Pioneer is a slim, lightweight portable disc burner perfect for mobile workstations including netbook or notebook computers. Whether you need to burn Blu-ray, DVDs, or CDs, the BDR-XU03 can quickly and conveniently help you get the job done.

The drive allows you to watch both standard and 3D Blu-ray disc titles, write high-definition Blu-ray content to a disc, while also featuring high-capacity data storage. The drive supports the BDXL format, providing 128 GB quad layer and 100 GB triple layer Blu-ray media. The BDR-XU03 can read BD-ROM discs, read/write to single, dual, triple, and quad layer BD-R discs, and is backward compatible to read and write to DVD and CD formats.

It is even USB bus powered so you don't need to carry around yet another AC adapter or power supply.

Store More Data
You can store up to 156% more data storage capacity than a 50 GB Dual Layer Blu-ray Disc. The BDXL format supports BDXL Blu-ray media (including 128 GB Quad Layer (QL) and 100 GB Triple Layer (TL) Blu-ray Disc)
Faster Burning
6x writing on BD-R single-layer and dual-layer discs. 4x writing on BD-R triple-layer and quad layer discs
Wide Blank Media Support
Pioneer drive's media support list is extensive for both reading and writing
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 quickly move forward to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback
Auto Quiet Mode
Pioneer drives with Auto Quiet mode, monitor how they are being used and will adjust their speed automatically - high speed for data transfer, and low speed for music or movie playback
PureRead Technology
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
An Eco-Friendly Drive
Smaller packaging - saves resources and fuel for transportation
Reduced power consumption on external USB drives which allows for eco-friendly USB bus-powered drives

    Pioneer BDR-XU03 reviews

    BDR-XU03 USB 3.0 BD/DVD/CD Burner is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect for my iMac The finish matches the apple iMac perfectly. Removed from box and plugged into a USB3 port. I already had the video material authored in Final Cut Pro. Selected the BDDR-XU03 drive and loaded a blank BR-R disc. About 20 minutes later I had my first Blu-Ray disc that has worked in several players.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a good job Worked right out of the box. Computer (Win 7) recognized device and loaded drivers quickly and without gliches. Slim design My only gripe is that there's no eject button on the device.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Does what it should, quickly and quietly. Solid build quality as well

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Robust hardware, no software included I bought this to play blu-rays on my MacBook Pro. The build quality is excellent. The biggest disappointment is that there's no included software, so I had to buy MacGo. It all works nicely as a player. Next I have to figure out a good way of burning BDs - someone recommended Toast

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive...hopefully worth it! I could have spent a lot less for similar capability, but I wanted something small, light, and tough to travel with my new Ultrabook, and this thing is beautiful! I hope it is as durable as it looks. It's a little noisy when loading, but not when operating. There is utility software from Pioneer that hasn't been made available yet on their support website, but they will send it on request. It does enable Blu-ray movie playback with appropriate software.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Burner Small, efficient, quiet. Works perfectly with my new IMac. Pioneer continues to make great products. If you are in need of a burner, buy this one!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Product Operates as elegant as it looks. The versatility of viewing and burning Blu-ray DVD's and downward compatible with every single format of CD or DVD gives great flexibility in usage. Compact and lightweight to carry and transport. Extremely happy with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Drive The Super Drive in my Mac has been malfunctioning, rather then take it to Apple, I looked for alternatives. Since the new Macs don't have a built in drive, I decided to go with this one, and when I get a new Mac, I will have a drive. It works great!
