The BDR-212UBK is an internal SATA Blu-ray, DVD, and CD writer that supports the BDXL and M-DISC format. The drive supports 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray playback using included CyberLink software. The drive can read and write to all BDXL discs1 including BD-R triple-layer 100GB media, BD-R quad-layer 128GB media, and BD-RE triple layer 100GB media, as well as conventional Blu-ray discs (single-layer 25GB media and dual-layer 50GB media). With BDXL and M-DISC support, you can now back up your files with fewer discs than ever before.


The BDR-212UBK includes CyberLink Software, “CyberLink Media Suite 10” only for Windows OS. PowerDVD™14 delivers award winning playback software and will even upscale standard-definition content to high-definition quality. PowerDirector® 15 LE allows you to import your home movies, edit them, and then upload them to social media sites. Power2Go® 8 gives you the ability to burn your valuable files to Blu-ray (including triple and quad layer BDXL discs), DVD or CD media.


The BDR-212UBK has unique features such as “Easy Setting” function using Pioneer BDR-212UBK Drive Utility. Easy Setting can provide comfortable usability according to purposes. Also, with improved drive software, BDR-212UBK has a prolonged life about twice of conventional models.
