    Pioneer introduced a pair of Blu-ray writer drives capable of writing 100 GB Blu-ray XL discs, under the BDR-PR1M series. These include the BDR-PR1M base model, and BDR-PR1MA, which is designed with additional error-correction layers, that minimize writing errors. The drive is capable of write speeds as high as 4X for Blu-ray discs, 6X for DVDs, and 16X for CDs. Single and double-layer Blu-ray discs are read at 8X, BDXLs at 4X, DVDs at 16X, and 40X for CDs. The drives feature standard SATA interface.

    The single layer BD write and read speeds seem really slow. 12X is standard on the market nowadays.

    These are not your ordinary Blu-ray writers.

    A Twitter feed suggests that they seem to be built for a special type of discs as some say here.
     
    Munki and Jizzler say thanks.

    Good information. However, I would like some proof that my data will be on that disc 50 years for now. Up comes the question of do you trust putting your valuable data on a companies claim.

    Well it had better come with a 50 yr warranty on each disc,…… ;)

    Each disc probably cost at least one $1 for every year of that 50 yr warranty,....or maybe I low balled it,...maybe more.

    Nice! "Enterprise" class BDrom. As a person who used to burn a shitload of discs I can say this looks like an end to coaster ripz :eek:

    Why wouldn't the data stay on the disc? If stored/used properly they should last, prolly longer than we'll live lol

    I still spin vinyl records that are almost 50yrs old, still sound good too! :eek:

    Nice strong tray. I like that.

    (I think CDRInfo meant to say that the BDR-PR1MA has the additional error-correction, unless the OP is wrong)

    Was just now shopping around for some parts, including a Blu-Ray drive, when I remembered this news post. Couldn't find it for sale, but did find this:

    Ok... probably going to pick up a different drive.
