Pioneer BDR-211UBK overview

  • 1Description

Supporting both 12cm and 8cm discs, the BDR-211UBK Internal BD/DVD/CD Writer from Pioneer comes bundled with CyberLink PowerDVD 14 UHD-BD software, allowing for the playback of Ultra HD Blu-ray media on compatible Windows systems. If you're looking to use this drive for playing Ultra HD media, minimum specs include Windows 10, a 7th generation Intel Core i7 or i5 processor, 6GB of RAM, and a 3840 x 2160 display that supports HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2. If you're simply looking to use this drive for its reading and writing to Blu-ray, DVD, and CD media, minimum specs require Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, or Vista, an Intel Core Duo T2700/E6300 or AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 1024 x 768 display.

When it comes to reading and writing optical media, dual and triple layer Ultra HD BD-ROM discs, single and dual layer BD-ROM discs, single, dual, triple, and quad layer BD-R discs, and single, dual, and triple layer BD-RE discs, as well as a variety of DVD and CD media are all supported. BD-R media can be written at speeds up to 16x, BD-RE up to 2x, DVD±R up to 16x, DVD±R DL up to 8x, DVD-RW up to 6x, DVD+RW up to 8x, CD-R up to 40x, and CD-RW up to 24x.

The BDR-211UBK Internal BD/DVD/CD Writer connects to your system using its SATA III 6 Gb/s interface and a built-in 4MB data buffer helps to keep disc writing errors to a minimum. Including the first setting, the region code on this drive can be changed five times, after which the selected region setting becomes permanent.

Drive Features

Supports Ultra HD Blu-ray Playback
The 211UBK supports Ultra HD Blu-ray playback using bundled CyberLink software.
Store More Data
With a storage capacity of up to 156% more than a 50GB Blu-ray disc, the BDXL format supports 100GB Triple Layer (TL) and 128GB Quad Layer (QL) media.
Faster Burning
Up to 16x writing on BD-R SL discs, 14x on BD-R DL discs, and 8x writing on BD-R TL discs.
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.
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.
Auto Quiet Mode
Pioneer drives with Auto Quiet mode monitor how they are being used and adjust their speed automatically, with higher speeds for data transfers and lower speeds for music or movie playback.
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. PureRead3+, when enabled, makes the drive re-read the obscured data to extract the original music as accurately as possible.
Blank Media Support
Pioneer strives to support a wide range of BD and DVD media. Refer to the drive's media support list for all supported media and the write speed that can be achieved.
Peak Power Reducer
This power saving mode enables the drive to suppress its power consumption at peak operation, allowing it to remain stable in the event of a reduction in available power.

    Pioneer BDR-211UBK reviews

    BDR-211UBK Internal BD/DVD/CD Writer with Ultra HD Blu-ray Playback is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Multi-Disc Unit I purchased this to replace one of my LG burners, of which I have had several. It's truly wonderful to again have a drive that is relatively silent and never groans like the LG units. I have used it for UHD, Blu-ray and DVD playback with wonderful results. It does burn and read at close to 16X while my LG drivers top at somewhat below 8X. This is a great drive and I'm happy to see that Pioneer still delivers quality even after all their recent turmoil in Japan.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent buy This drive has performed well for me, it plays back blu-rays perfectly. If you are buying this to make backup copies of your UHD disks, it likely will not work. For home theater use it is a fine drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect price for the perfect CD player Bought this from B&H to support my build of a 4K desktop. With the Kaby lake CPU and motherboard, I can watch 4K UHD videos on my computer. Great price and excellent service from B&H
    Date published: 2017-10-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Pioneer products I think Pioneer blu ray burners are the best on the market. I can burn cd, dvd, bd, anything that can be burned, this unit can do it, also up to 128gb blu ray discs.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pioneer hose job if you run windows 10 Intend to use this device with ULTRA Blu-ray discs. I expect the burner will work as advertised but wow!!! does Pioneer hose you! First they do not include the tiny screws necessary to install the burner in your computer. No jump cables are included either but that is not the real killer. As advertised you get a copy of Cyberlink software Version 10. When the player function freezes Pioneer tech support tells you to call Cyberlink because it is a software problem. When you tell Cyberlink about the freezing, they tell you that Version 10 does not support Windows 10. You must upgrade to at least version 15. Have contacted Pioneer twice to ask them if you would upgrade me to at least 15 since their box lists Windows 10 as compatible. (version 16 is the current version) They refuse to even respond to my emails. If you take the link Cyberlink gives you for V16 the cost is $150. If you click on the upgrade button on the V10 product, they offer the upgrade for $60. So, buy the Pioneer burner and enclosed software for $130 and spend another $60 to actually use it on a Windows 10 machine. Pioneer pretty much has the high performance burner market cornered so you don't have may other choices. :(
