Pioneer introduces the world's first 12x BD-R/BD-R DL optical drive. The BDR-205 Internal Blu-ray Disc/DVD/CD Writer is the next generation Blu-ray Disc Writer from Pioneer. This revolutionary product will write up to 12x on BD-R (25Gbytes) and BD-R DL (50Gbytes) media*. It allows users to author high-definition Blu-ray Disc content while also delivering the ability for high-capacity data storage. One BD-R DL disc will hold the same amount of data as 10 DVDs (single layer).
The BDR-205 can read BD-ROM and BD-ROM DL, read/write single and dual layer BD-R & BD-RE discs, read DVD-ROM, and read/write most DVD and CD recordable media formats.
*The drive has been tested to achieve 12x speeds with certain media brands. 12x writing on all media cannot be guaranteed.
