Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today unveiled its new internal BD/DVD/CD writers with Serial ATA interface: the BDR-S13U-X, a premium model with advanced features and quality; the BDR-S13UBK, an advanced model that offers reliability and stability; and the BDR-2213, a standard model.
With the increasing popularity of work from home, there are more occasions to store large amounts of data at home, such as work data and recordings of online meetings.
BDR-S13U-X, BDR-S13UBK and BDR-2213 are read and write compatible with BD and BDXL™ standard discs and archival optical media M-DISC™. In addition to conventional high-precision writing speeds such as 16x BD-R, the new products support 6x writing speed to M-DISC (BD) Single Layer 25 GB and M-DISC (DVD), achieving higher writing speeds and improved writing quality. In addition, BDR-S13U-X and BDR-S13UBK are equipped with features for enjoying music on a PC, such as PureRead 4+, which faithfully reads audio CD data, and RealTime PureRead, which reduces the frequency of data interpolation in real time. BDR-2213 is equipped with PureRead 3+.
In terms of product appearance, the front bezel and tray cover have been redesigned, all while maintaining the quietness and high dust resistance of previous models. For BDR-S13U-X and BDR-S13UBK, the simple design of smoked acrylic with a hairline finish from which blue light seems to emerge with floating blue light and line accents creates a high-quality feel. For BDR-2213, the simple, flat design uses blue LED lighting and a hairline finish to create a contrasting texture.
Other features include a new Custom Eco function that reduces power consumption.
