The internal drive can write up to 128 Gbytes on a single BDXL Quad Layer disc (equal to 27 single layer DVDs). Designed for professional users, this computer drive allows users to author high-definition Blu-ray Disc content while also delivering the ability for high-capacity data storage. The drive can read BD-ROM discs, read/write triple/dual/single layer BD-R and BD-RE discs, read DVD-ROM, and read/write most DVD and CD recordable media formats.
The Pioneer BDR-207JBK writer is able to burn and read 3-layer and 4-layer BD-R XL (100GB and 128GB) at 12x and 3-layer BD-RE XL (100GB) discs at 2X.
Compared to the single and dual layer Blu-ray disc formats, the BDXL still uses the Partial Response - Maximum Likelihood (PRML) data recover methods and 17PP channel modulation. However, BDXL features an increased linear density. In addition, the thickness of the BDXL discs' spacer (layer) is different than BD SL and DL to avoid any optical interference issues introduced by the disc's multi-layers.
The drive is also compatible with the Blu-ray 3D format and of course is capable of writing on both BD-R SL and DL discs at 12X, BD-R LtH (6X), BD-RE SL /DL at 2x, DVD recordables (SL) at 16X max, DVD recordables (DL) at 8x, DVD-RW at 6X, DVD+RW at 8X, DVD-RAM at 5X, CD-R at 40x and Cd-RW at 24X.
The maximum reading speeds for BD-ROM SL is 10x, BD-ROM DL 8x, DVD-ROM SL 16x, DVD-ROM DL 12x and CD at 40x.
The "Peak Power Reducer" technology maintains low power consumption and stable operation. The "Limit Equalizer technology" purifies unclear signals generated when reading data on BD discs in order to improve reading quality. Last but not least, the "Disc vibration Resonance Stabilizer" technology is dedicated for precision writing in a high speed environment: high speed disc rotation causes disc warping due to disc resonant vibration. This results in unstable writing quality, especially in the outer areas the newly designed top chassis, air flow caused by the high speed rotation will press the disc.
The internal SATA drive is equipped with a 4MB internal buffer.
