Pioneer was one of the first manufacturers to introduce the Blu-ray burning technology. Now Pioneer returns with its second generation Blu-Ray burning drive, the BDR-202 multi-burner. The drive supports up to 12X DVD+/-R media burning, up to 6X for DVD+/-RW, up to 4X for DVD+/-R DL, up to 24X for CDR/RW, up to 4X for BD-R and up to 2X for BDRE. It does not support BDR-DL (50GB) burning though, which was also the case with its predecessor, the BDR-101A.
- Drive Features & Specification
The drive is available in both black and white and uses the SATA 1.0 interface.
Let's take a look at the internal components of the drive. Note that opening the drive case voids the warranty and should be avoided.
The drive uses the RENESAS R8J32500FPV chip, also found in the Pioneer BDC-202 BD-ROM drive.
