Pioneer launches their BDR-211UBK Blu-Ray XL writer, which supports writing to Ultra HD Blu-ray disks with capacities of up to 128GB. 
 
This player will also allow PC users to enjoy 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray media on PC, coming with CyberLink software to enable the playback of modern media. The BDR-211UBK will also support faster write speeds than older Blu-ray writers, offerings 16x maximum writes on a single-layer Blu-ray, 14x writes on dual layer discs and 8x writes on triple layer discs. This player/writer also supports quadruple-layer Blu-ray discs. 
 
Below is a list of features that are supported by this new Blu-ray player/writer. 
 
  • - Ultra HD Blu-ray playback - the BDR-211UBK supports Ultra HD Blu-ray playback using the bundled CyberLink software. Ultra HD Blu-ray includes content up to 4K resolution (3840 pixels horizontal×2160pixels vertical) and a wider range of colours compared to full HD.
  • - Faster burning - Up to 16x maximum write speed on BD-R single-layer discs, 14x on BD-R DL discs and 8x on BD-R triple-layer discs.
  • - Compatible with Windows 10 - The BDR-211UBK and bundled software are compatible with the latest Windows OS, Windows 10.
  • - Region Code Change - BDR-211UBK has DVD regional playback control. It allows users to set the region of the drive up to five times.

Other features:

  • - Store more data - Support for BDXL media, which stores up to 156% more data than 50GB Dual Layer Blu-ray Disc, including 100GB Triple Layer (TL) and 128GB Quadruple Layer (QL) discs.
  • - QuickPlay - BD-ROM and DVD-ROM discs are ready quickly after insertion.
  • - PowerRead - Through its PowerRead feature, the BDR-211UBK provides smoother movie playback when a disc is marked with fingerprints or has minor surface scratches. When the drive is not able to read through these obstructed areas of a disc, it will quickly move forward to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback.
  • - Auto Quiet Mode - The drive monitors how it is being used and will adjust its disc rotation speed automatically, using a quieter mode (slower speed) when watching Blu-ray and DVD titles or listening to conventional audio CDs.
  • - PureRead3 - Clicking or popping sounds that might normally occur due to minor scratches and fingerprints on CDs can be prevented on some discs with the drive's PureRead3 technology, which allows the drive to adjust its optical playback settings dynamically through the use of a unique algorithm.
  • - Peak power Reducer - This power saving mode enables the drive to suppress power consumption at peak operation. It keeps stable operation in case of a drop in power supply.

 

 The Pioneer BDR-211UBK will be available at select retailers in late March, with an MSP of $129.99 in the US.

Yup, pretty much. I just use an old crappy dvd one when installing/reinstalling Windows of the disc. Nothing more, don't even have one nor even a 5.25" bay in my case lol.

They're inventing in an old and pretty much dead technology department by now.Quote

While that's true, I can see it finding a niche with people who would use the high capacity discs for archiving data. I know some people who still backup data to DVDs because they are worried about external HDDs packing up, silly in my opinion but I can kinda see their point, until the drive packs up Quote

I can see it being useful for people who don't have fast internet. Although being able to write onto a blu-ray isn't needed for most people, being able to read 4k blu-rays? Yeah I'm interested. Would be hard pressed to find a 4k blu-ray player for a similar price.Quote

Remember you only get to watch a HD Blu Ray if you also have Kaby Lake. Only its 5% performance boost over last gen makes it capable of such a miracle... Quote
