Pioneer Intros the BDR-XD04 Their Smallest and Lightest Portable BDXL BD/DVD/CD Burner


TestFreaks Data











Yeah, ok I want one of these. The new Pioneeer BDR-XD04 is their or most probably the smallest and lightest blu-ray burner on the market today. This thing can handle the 25gb and 50gb discs, I can do a lot of backups on those. I’m really tired of using DVDs for my backups, it just takes way too many. Price for the new BDR-XD04 is only $149.99, I really expected a much higher price.

BDR-XD04 Advantages

  • PowerRead™ – The BDR-XD04 can provide smoother movie playback when a disc has fingerprints or minor surface scratches through the use of its PowerRead feature. When the drive is not able to read through these obstructed areas of a disc, it will quickly move forward to the next available data point, resulting in smoother Blu-ray and DVD movie playback.
  • PureRead2+ –Click or pop sounds that might normally occur due to minor scratches and fingerprints on CDs can be prevented on some discs with the drive’s PureRead2+ technology, which allows the drive to dynamically adjust its optical playback settings through the use of a unique algorithm.²
  • Auto Quiet Mode – The drive also features an Auto Quiet mode that minimizes its operating noise based on how it is being used. The rotation speed changes to a quieter (slower) speed when watching Blu-ray and DVD titles or listening to conventional audio CDs.
  • Direct USB Power – Designed for simple and easy integration, the BDR-XD04 can be powered directly through most USB PC connections without AC power. For additional convenience, when a host computer’s USB port does not supply enough current, the BDR-XD04 provides an AC adapter terminal (optional DCA-001 AC power supply required). In addition, the device supports USB boot startup for reading bootable recovery CDs3.
  • Manual Eject Lever – The BDR-XD04 incorporates a manual eject lever which lets the user eject a loaded disc when power to the device is not available.
  • Bundled Software – The BDR-XD04 is bundled with the following CyberLink software: PowerDVD™ 10 BD3D, PowerDirector® 9 and Power2Go® 7.

The Pioneer BDR-XD04 will be available mid January with a suggested retail price of $149.99
