Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today unveiled the BDR-2207, Pioneer's most powerful and full-featured drive. The internal SATA drive can read and write to all BDXL disc formats, including BD-R and BD-RE triple-layer 100 GB media, BD-R quad-layer 128 GB media, as well as conventional recordable Blu-ray Disc (single-layer 25 GB media and dual-layer 50 GB media). In addition, the drive features PowerRead and Pioneer's PureRead2, Auto Quiet mode, QuickStart, and Peak Power Reducer technologies.

The BDR-2207 is packaged with CyberLink software that gives users the ability to play standard Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D titles on correctly configured computers, as well as author and record high-definition Blu-ray Disc content and standard-definition DVD content.





"Consumers do so much with their computers that we wanted to create a drive that does pretty much everything you'll need, whether it's saving data or playing back content," said Steven Cohn, director of Optical Sales for the Home Electronics Industrial Department at Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "Plus, the BDR-2207 is extremely fast and powerful to match the processing capability and speed consumers are used to with today’s computers."

BDR-2207 Advantages:

- PowerRead - Through its PowerRead feature the BDR-2207 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.

- PureRead2 - 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 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 the type of use. The rotation speed changes to a quieter mode (slower speed) when watching Blu-ray and DVD titles or listening to conventional audio CDs.

- QuickStart - The amount of time between inserting a disc and the disc being ready for use has been reduced by up to 42% over previous generation models.

- Peak Power Reducer - Some computers do not provide enough power to the drive during operation. In the case of a write operation, an error will occur and cause the disc to become useless. To prevent this, the Peak Power Reducer feature, when enabled, monitors the power and can reduce the drive's peak power to ensure stable operation.

- Bundled Software - For additional convenience, the BDR-2207 is bundled with the following CyberLink software: PowerDVD 10 BD3D, PowerDirector 9 and Power2Go 7.

The Pioneer BDR-2207 will be available in early May with a suggested retail price of $99.99.

2 problems,

1) I don't need any of the crappy programs [PowerDVD 10 BD3D, PowerDirector 9 and Power2Go 7] that can reduce the price no?

2) What happened to Pioneer they had a good designs before why can't they use same creativity?

The good point is that it’s only $100 but without this programs that I can buy/download if I wanted to the price can be maybe $50-70 and that will make it even better!

I'm sure the software makers give the programs to them for way, way less than the RRP. The intent is to include them "cheaply" or for free so folks new to the tech end up using their products rather than someone else's and they will get money from them when upgrade time comes etc.

Blu-Ray readers typically come in at about ~$55 to ~$60 USD.

PowerDVD 10,…..?

Cyberlink is already up to PowerDVD Ultra 12. Why for with the 10,….?

Sheesh,….

An upgrade from version 10 or 11 will cost ~$41.95. An upgrade from version 9 and below will cost ~$85. Almost as much as the Pioneer BDXL/BD/DVD/CD Recordable Drive above,…..

I wouldn’t expect a price lower then ~$95 or maybe ~$90 for something like the OEM version if the MSRP is about ~$100. Aslo note that retailers and etailers like to jack up the price of new items. This is a BDXL/BD/DVD/CD Recordable Drive not a typical SL/DL burner or BD ROM reader + DVD burner.

I don’t expect to see it for $50-70 USD any time soon with or without software.

Shortly... YES! Why can't they add some nice LED's for e.g. read/write/standby, or LED bar indicator for the CD/DVD %space , it's not like some LED's cost that much at max $10

LED bar indicator e.g. [Found on Google images search]


Look at this for e.g.



You know what I mean? Like Pioneer normally have a very nice style, But this... this is toooo simple, and for the price it's even worse! and on top of that they give you crappy OLD software that will cost you another $50-100 to update.

Relax, you can find it retail as bulk also, for the price you mention it...;)
Don't think so... but maybe in a year or two?!

I can't find a drive that suits the metal front of the Corsair 650D. And this new drive still doesn't help. :(
