Need a powerful drive? Already have software? Then the BDR-207DBK is the drive for you. The BDR-207DBK drive is perfect for system builders, for those looking to upgrade to a Blu-ray burner, or for those who already have software. The BDR-207DBK is an internal SATA drive. It can burn up to 12x on BD-R (25GB) and BD-R dual layer (50GB) media, which is the fastest write speed available! The drive is also backwards compatible, so it can read and write to most DVD and CD formats. Click on the Specifications tab to see all supported media formats, as well as the read and write speeds achievable. Want to watch Blu-ray 3D titles? Well the BDR-207DBK drive is 3D capable.

The BDR-207DBK drive has features such as a QuickStart which enables the disc to be ready 42% faster, a Noise Suppression design to minimize noise, an Anti-Dust design to increase durability, and Precision Writing Technology to minimize write errors. And of course being a Pioneer drive, the BDR-207DBK drive supports a wide range of blank media.

Here is the link to the dabs.com website: http://www.dabs.com/products/pioneer-bdr-207dbk-12x-sata-int-bd-rw-burner-black-bare-80WC.html

I added the ebay outlet link instead of the dabs site because the dabs site charge £3.99 to deliver. Where as the Ebay outlet send the item for free.

Excellent price for a decent Blu-Ray writer.
Now if only I had an excuse to actually buy one...

Good deal though.

Only reasons I got one is for hd films of the kids rather than loosing quality and to stick load of avis on so the kids don't scratch all the dvds

I mainly got it to watch blu-rays on. A normal Blu-ray rom drive costs about £45-£50 so I just decided to pay the little bit extra for the burning capabilities.

Never know. It may come in handy. Could be a good way to keep my games I got from green man backed up.

I just got battlefield 3 from green man the other day thanks to HUKDs. But having to keep the downloaded game on the hard drive for when I need to re-install does take up space. I have a far few games now that I have downloaded that are taking up space.With a 25GB blu-ray I can burn 2 games to it and free up HD space.

I have no issue downloading games, but having to download a copy of the game as well as installing it is using up alot of sapce.

Battlefield 3 is 13GBs to download then another 17GB once installed.

That's Blu-Ray drives in general - and I certainly don't have one in either my desktop (custom built, so chose to go with a DVD-RW) or laptop (just didn't come with one) and I get by just fine. The only Blu-Ray drive I have is in my PS3, which is obviously used for PS3 games and movies - I have a fairly decent, growing Blu-Ray collection.

But who actually needs a writer? I shoot and edit video in HD and I've never once been asked by a client to deliver content on Blu-Ray. I used to get asked to author DVD videos all the time, even after switching to HD, but these days I mostly just get asked to deliver HD files, which are mostly sent online, or possibly burned to DVD. I'd love to get a Blu-Ray writer, I just can't justify it until I actually need one.

Paid this about 6 months ago for this drive, But wish i brought a drive that came with software as the software for bluray play back is expensive.

We are still using optical media ?? each to their own.

Bought one of these a few weeks ago to sit in my Microserver.

How reliable is dual layer blue ray writing? Dual layer DVD writing is not IMO very reliable. If you are just wanting to keep a copy of video files why not just use a USB3 external drive? One terrabyte storage for about the same price.

Awesome find. Great for backing up original TV transport streams of non-bluray HDTV series.
