Cheapest price out there currently for this drive

Average price, certainly no steal of a price to get excited about but the voting has gone even worse on this site.

Lazy find, just do Google shopping with BDR-S06, probably prompted by the other Pioneer BD post in which I pointed out for a few pounds more you can get a retail BDR-S06.

Just to add surely mods should not be voting on a "deal" that houkdeals is obviously affiliated with either? guess integrity went out the window

Wow....a whole 50p cheaper than Scan!

When it says quad layer I'm guessing that's a fancy way of saying dual layer, double sided?

BDXL

The BDXL format supports 100GB and 128GB write-once discs[74][75] and 100GB rewritable discs for commercial applications. It was defined in June 2010.

BD-R 3.0 Format Specification (BDXL) defined a multi-layered disc recordable in BDAV format with the speed of 2X and 4X, capable of 100/128GB and usage of UDF2.5/2.6.[76]

BD-RE 4.0 Format Specification (BDXL) defined a multi-layered disc rewritable in BDAV with the speed of 2X and 4X, capable of 100GB and usage of UDF2.5 as file system.[77]

BDXL discs are not compatible with existing BD drives.
----------------------------
they are layered inside the disc, no need to flip the disc over, however since they are not compatible with existing bd drives, the triple and quad layer discs, theres a good chance they might not take off at all, but for the sake of 6-7quid its worth it, even as backup purpose for your pc.

Makes me wish I didn't just spend £50 on my Cyberlink 11 download now

What ? I didn't compare the drives I just said this is a lazy find, probably prompted by the previous Pioneer BD post.

Johno Muller, I assume you mean PowerDVD 11. The software BD player (PowerDVD) you have is better than the one supplied with this drive (which I believe is PowerDVD version 9).

It's all very well having a cheap price for the WRITER, but when the media costs nearly £80 for a stack of 10 * 50GB discs, you're better off buying a 2TB HD and archiving your stuff to that. Roughly the same price, 4 times the capacity (even assuming you don't ruin any of the BDs when you write them), quite likely to be faster, definitely more convenient and don't need any new hardware.

Are discs really that expensive? wow. No thanks then.

but what if you need to back up multiple copies of files? A single hard drive is not effective compared to separate discs. Horses for courses

from what i have seen 7day shop do a AONE Blu-Ray 25Gb 4x BD-R Blank Discs - White Inkjet Printable (10 Pack) £9.62 and as we know by the price of cd`s and dvds they will come down

i was just after a drive and this was the right time for me

Heat from me.... I don't care if you were prompted by my earlier deal.

This ones better and that's what makes this site ace. No doubt someone else will try to beat it again until we have the best deal available.

.....and if you think BD50's are absurdly expensive just wait until your try getting hold of BDXLs.

This supervoter system just makes me want to vote cold to the item just to negate it. It's not really fair on the OP, but what a rubbish idea.
What was wrong with the old way? If a deal is good it will get hot regardless.

It's only £1 more on Amazon with free delivery. I'd get it there instead.

Don't forget your 3% cash back through Quidco :-)

Order placed!

agreed, this site is getting more tacky (aka more housewife friendly) by the day

I think I read somewhere that if you put video on a BDXL disc, most blu ray players won't play it? Anyone know more?

Seriously are people that lazy, its the quad layer version, not dual layer, its £85 on amazon.

As for BDXL yes its not very supported right now, if you bought this it would be more for future compatibility than using triple or quad layer discs now, IIRC the 100gb ones are around £100, and the 128gb ones aren't available, something like that.

25gb discs are about £1 a disk these days, as for buying HDD's instead, its not a horrible option, but try taking a series of tv from an internal disc around to your mate's house, taking a bluray is a damn site easier. Remember 25gb discs used to be £40-50(I can't really remember how much) and cd-r's used to cost a bit, and dvd's use to cost a decent amount.

I'd get a quad layer drive over a dual layer, because you're losing nothing getting it for basically the same price as a dual layer version, its also a seemingly good model, my older blu ray player(not writer) is pretty dang loud when watching a film, if it would ruddy spin down to a lower speed when playing back it would cut out a lot of the noise, looks like the Pioneer does that.

I used to buy my 74 minute cdrs when they came out in packs of 50 and they used to cost me £400.. My original HP4020i cd writer cost me £850 brand new.... What are they now £10 if that...
Lol the good old days......

Not sure where your getting your discs from but i pay £26.12 for 10 Blank TDK 4x 50GB dual layer discs from ebay. Search ebay for: 10 TDK Blu-ray 50GB 4x blank BD-R DL Repacked FREE SAL

A lot of movies i get are remuxed from 50GB to 25GB and at about £8 for 10 blank 25GB discs its very affordable which works out at £8 for 250GB of storage, £16 for 500GB of storage and £32 for 1TB of storage which works out cheaper than a hard drive.

Basically i save my 50GB discs for the 3D Blu Rays or movies i want with special menus and extras.

is this the best player out of them all for the computer?? I'm looing on buying a blu ray writer/reader

Banned

I guess BDR-S06XLB is the retail version of the bulk BDR-206 DBK 12X blu-ray disc writer,

I have the LG model and its been fine so far... Pioneer were the best at DVDR but i think they will both perform the same.

I've had AONE dvd+r DL disks and I got a lot of coasters. Burned with Pioneer, Samsung and LG.

The bdxl disks are not compatible with bluray players. Where as in Japan they have been selling the bluray bdxl player/recorders for a while now.

Banned

whats better out of these 2 drives:

Pioneer BDR-S06XLB or LG Blu-Ray Writer, BH10LS30.AUAR

What's the deal with these daft red 'Ninja' headings?

Is it supposed to make us believe that some elite 'NINJA' member has given an item heat, so it must be good? ......and that we should all give heat too?

Daft, if you ask me.:|

Been on this site for a few year, and tbh... This voting has gotten a little silly.

Also, who in the right frame of mind use's 50GB discs? Bit of a freakish hobby if you have to have a full blown full hd blu-ray movie downloaded to watch it, because lets face it.. you're downloading it lol

Hi,
Yes you are totally right. This has been happening for years! it all depends on who posts the deals as you don't get onto the "Hot" homepage until you get around 100 degrees. So base this on how many look on the new deals (mostly mods) you only get the heat if the mods think so!
Also would also like to add HUKD is getting too big for its boots totally affiliating what they get the best backhander out of.
This use to be a spit and sawdust type of place now its like gocompare/confused/hukdmeeeeerfarttt simples
