The BDR-212V is an internal SATA drive. It can burn up to 16x on BD-R (25GB) media and up to 14x on BD-R dual layer (50GB) media, which is the fastest in the market! The drive is also backwards compatible, so it can read and write to most DVD and CD formats.
With Vinpower’s support, Pioneer improved the drive’s DVD±R burning performance by providing consistent and reliable burning of any file type for the duration of the duplication progress. This ensures the recordable DVD media will have a greater success rate when copying and greater reliability of playback. In addition, the enhanced BDR-212V will ensure even and uniform burning appearance across the full circumference of the disc every time, even if just burning 1 disc or during heavy use.
The BDR-212V drive has features such as a QuickPlay which enables movies discs to be ready faster, a Noise Suppression design to minimize noise, an Anti-Dust design to increase durability, and Precision Writing Technology to minimize write errors. And of course being a Pioneer drive, the BDR-212V drive supports a wide range of blank media .
