Pioneer Releases New Portable BDXL BD Burner

Pioneer today unveiled the BDR-XD04, the world's smallest and lightest BD/DVD/CD portable burner supporting BDXL currently available.

The ultra-compact clamshell type drive can read and write to all BDXL disc formats 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). The portable device, measuring only 5.2" (W) X .55" (H) X 5.2" (D) and weighing a mere 8.46 ounces, also features PowerRead, PureRead2+, Auto Quiet mode and the ability to be powered directly via USB.

The BDR-XD04 also includes CyberLink software, enabling users to watch standard Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D titles, and author high-definition Blu-ray Disc content or standard-definition DVD content.

The BDR-XD04 can provide smoother movie playback when a disc has fingerprints or minor surface scratches through the use of its PowerRead feature. 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.



PureRead2+ - Click or pop sounds that might normally occur due to minor scratches and fingerprints on CDs can be prevented on some discs with the drive?s PureRead2+ technology, which allows the drive to dynamically adjust its optical playback settings through the use of a unique algorithm.

Auto Quiet Mode - The drive also features an Auto Quiet mode that minimizes its operating noise based on how it is being used. The rotation speed changes to a quieter (slower) speed when watching Blu-ray and DVD titles or listening to conventional audio CDs.

Designed for simple and easy integration, the BDR-XD04 can be powered directly through most USB PC connections without AC power. For additional convenience, when a host computer?s USB port does not supply enough current, the BDR-XD04 provides an AC adapter terminal (optional DCA-001 AC power supply required). In addition, the device supports USB boot startup for reading bootable recovery CDs.

The Pioneer BDR-XD04 will be available mid January with a suggested retail price of $149.99
