Pioneer BDR-XD05 overview

  • 1Description

The black BDR-XD055 6x Slim Portable USB 3.0 BD/DVD/CD Burner from Pioneer is a slim, lightweight, and portable Windows and Mac compatible optical drive. It features playback, read, and write support for a variety of optical media, including BD-R, BD-RE, BD-XL TL, BD-XL QL, BD-ROM, DVD±R, DVD±RW, DVD-RAM, CD-R, CD-ROM, and CD-RW. This broad range of formats allows you to select the media best suited for your needs.

This drive connects to your Windows or Mac compatible system using a USB 3.0 connection. The USB 3.0 connection also powers the drive which features a 4MB buffer. While this drive is designed for USB 3.0, it is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0. A secondary USB port is built into this drive and it is recommended that this additional USB port be used alongside the primary USB port to help ensure stability if the drive is being connected via USB 2.0.

This drive is well suited for Mac users who already have disc burning software and has other built-in features such as PowerRead, Auto Quiet mode and PureRead2+. In the Mac OS environment, the Finder may be used to read and write to BDXL, Blu-ray, DVD, and CD media, while the DVD player may be used to play DVD movies.

Compatibility
The BDR-XD055 optical drive can read and write a wide variety of disc formats, including BD-R, BD-RE, BD-XL TL, and BD-XL QL as well as DVD and CD media
Burning Speeds
6x writing on BD-R single-layer and dual-layer discs. 4x writing on BD-R triple layer and quad layer discs
BD-XL Triple Layer and Quad Layer Capacity
In addition to supporting single layer (25GB) and dual layer (50GB) Blu-ray discs, this model also supports BD-XL Triple Layer, a high capacity Blu-ray disc format that can store up to 100GB of data on write-once media. It also supports BD-XL Quad Layer, an even higher capacity Blu-ray disc format that can store up to 128GB of data on write-once media
Eco Friendly
The drive's smaller packaging helps to save resources and fuel for transportation. External USB drives also feature reduced power consumption which allows for the drive to be USB powered
PowerRead
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
PureRead2+
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

    Pioneer BDR-XD05 reviews

    BDR-XD05B 6x Slim Portable USB 3.0 BD/DVD/CD Burner (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 99.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Designed I mainly use this unit to watch bluray movies on my laptop which only has a DVD drive built-in. For the most part this drive performs well with reading movies. The dual-usb cable provides more power to the drive which is essential for stable usage. While the USB3.0 feature is a plus, my laptop only has USB2.0 ports and this drive still works great. Burning BluRay media is easy and works great. It can still take a long time if you try to fill a single BR disc in one-shot but it still works. I've only had a minor issue with watching movies where they would skip or show pixel artifacts but I think the issue was more with the media than the drive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple tool It's not a plug and play device for the Mac. You have to go to YouTube and watch this review where this guy explains what settings to change and what drivers to download in order to simply playback blu-ray discs on a Mac. As for burning, you also have to make sure that you check the compatibility of the blank media with this particular model. If you're planning to use this to back up critical client media or something important, you don't want to burn at 6x. It's potentially unstable. However, these are just things you'll want to to know. The device does it's job.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bye it and you won't be disappointed This is a Nice, small Blu Ray Combo player. It has excellent reviews against other devices of this type which I researched well before buying. This was the reason I purchased it and so far I have not been disappointed. Though it does have software included it is dated and I had some problems during Blu ray playback. The BDR-XD05B is the only one that includes software for playback. I purchased the latest Cyber link software and this seemed to take care of the problem. I Like the features and the size is great and fits my laptop bag well. The only reason it got 4 stars was the software, though it might work well for you. It fit my needs well. B&H had the best price and was delivered in a few days. Thanks guys.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm My latest laptop computers do not incorporate a built-in drive. The Pioneer BDR-XD055 fills that void and allows me to read and write CD's, DVD's and now BD's with ease.My main uses are for burning video DVD's and BD's and for reading/playing pre-recorded media. I have experienced any media that I could not read or write to and have tried CD-/+R, DVD-R and BD-R. I have played DVD and Blu-ray movies without problems. The Pioneer is small and lightweight in my computer bag. A USB3.0 Y-cable with an additional power USB connection is included. The second connector is for low power USB ports. I have found that my Lenovo Carbon X1 has enough power that only the main USB connection is required to power and operate the drive. I am considering a second unit for my wife.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Pioneer BDR writer! Easy setup, heck there is no setup.� You just plug and play.� I've now written different types of media on this writer.� DVD-R 4.7 and� DVD+R DL, BD-R Blu-Ray, and BD-R DL.� I have not yet written to BD-R XL.� The writer is quiet while writing.� I also to many "on location" assignments, which makes this writer a must because it is so light and portable.� My computers all iMacs (21.5" and 27" and yes they go where I go) and I use both Adobe and FCPX software.� I'm a photographer and videographer with over 45 years experience.� I love what I do and I don't like complicated equipment.� The Pioneer BDR-XD05S is Perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect DVD Accessory For Thinkpad T470p Purchased to use with LENOVO Thinkpad T470p. This computer has only USB 3.0 ports. The supplied BDR-XD05B connector cable has a bifurcated end on the computer connector side, allowing supplemental powering of the device if used with a computer only having USB 2.0. Was easy enough to find online another connector cable which did not have the bifurcated end - makes for a better cosmetic appearance when used with the T470p. I didn't use the included software on the T470p. Used an older ROXIO program that supports Blue Ray - ROXIO Creator 2011. Burner seems to work fine with the T470p and takes up little space in the computer carrying bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly what I expected Works very well and does what it's supposed to do. It's a little noisy when watching a video because of the constant reads. And it doesn't come with any software (but I knew that from other reviews). I was able to find a freeware Blu-Ray player called Leawo that seems to work OK. I believe Pioneers front load external BD player is quieter, but it's $40 more. I kind of like the top load setup as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blu-Ray on my Mac Playing movies on the Mac with this drive. Also writes rewritable and write once Blu-ray discs, DVDs and CDs. Looks well made and can open it unpowered without a paper clip. Comes with a Y cable providing power and USB 3 connection.
