Pioneer BDR-212UBK BD-R Internal BD/DVD/CD Writer with 4K ULTRA HD Blu-Ray Playback and M-Disc™ Support

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.

This BD-R 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.

Get To Your Files Faster

With QuickPlay, the amount of time between inserting a ROM disc, and that disc being ready, has been reduced. For movies on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, the disc is ready faster when compared to previous Pioneer drives.

Smooth Movie Playback

Scratches, fingerprints and other abnormalities on the surface of a disc can sometimes cause Blu-ray and DVD movie playback to stop. When a PowerRead enabled drive is not able to read through obstructed areas of a disc, it will attempt to move forward quickly to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback.

A Smarter Drive

Pioneer drives with Auto Quiet mode, monitor how they are being used and adjust their speed automatically; high speed for data transfer, and low speed for music or movie playback.

A Better Music Experience

Scratches and fingerprints on your CDs can cause them to skip. A drive normally makes a calculated guess at the unreadable data and attempts to correct this to match the original music. However this is not 100% accurate. PureRead3+, when enabled, makes the drive reread the obscured data to extract the original music as accurately as possible.

Wide Blank Media Support

Pioneer strives to have best in class performance over a wide range of media – our drives achieve this for a large variety of BD and DVD media. Refer to the drive’s media support list for all supported media and the write speed that can be achieved.

Peak Power Reducer

This power saving mode enables the drive to suppress power consumption at peak operation. It keeps stable operation in case of drop in power supply
