The Pioneer BDR-208JBK is an internal SATA Blu-ray writer drive that provides a highest Blu-ray writing speed. It can write Blu-ray ROM (BD-R) at 15X, dual-, triple-, and quad-layer BD-R at 14X, 8X, and 6X, respectively. The Pioneer BDR-208JBK can also write BD-RE discs at 2X, DVDs at 16X, and CDs at 40X. What makes this Blu-ray XL writer drive special is that it adopts PureRead3+, which lets the drive correct read errors on scratched discs. Each purchase comes bundled with several software from Cyberlink such as PowerDVD 10, PowerDirector, Power2Go 7, InstantBurn 5, and LabelPrint 2.

Sounds like a great Blu-ray drive.

whatever happened to the 400 gig BD's? I have a changer and would be ecstatic about saving space by putting the wife's TV series on them...along with some of my movie series.

???

Surely there's a ton of other good uses for hi-capacity optical storage discs.

Tech (responding to laughter): "I'm sorry sir, did I miss something?"

Me: "Yeah, a case of Diet Mountain Dew walking across my living room."

So, is there any reason to believe a BD XL Quad could store a 4K movie? Doubt it but just wondering...

Otherwise, we'll be waiting years from now for a company to develop a workable business model for 4K source storage due to the large companies uneasiness about the economy and sitting on their cash reserves instead of pouring it into R&D where it would actually be profitable later down the road...stagnation in tech. is never a good thing.

Yes 4K would fit considering HD-DVD's maximum size is 30GB and most movies look great on HD-DVD. If you quadruple that, you get 120GB, which is less than the 128 GB of BDXL.

But you wouldn't necessarily have to quadruple the size of the movie because of the way compression works.

Not to mention 4K will probably use H.265

My opinions do not reflect the policies of my company
