Pioneer BDR-208DBK Review – Internal Bluray Writer
The Pioneer BDR-208DBK is an internal blu ray player that can burn data/video to double layer discs (50GB), a feature that is not standard in lower end blu ray burners. It should be noted that the 208 is not a BDXL Burner (BDXL burners are capable of writing 100 GB and 128 GB write-once discs and 100 GB rewritable discs for commercial applications), other than that there is no difference between the Pioneer 208 and the more expensive Pioneer 2208. Additionally, it should be noted that many older blu ray players are not compatible with the BDXL format.

The Pioneer 208 is compatible with external Fire-Wire 800 and USB enclosures allowing you to digitize and back up your blu ray library to your Mac or PC laptop.
Summary: The Pioneer BDR-208DBK is an internal blu ray player that can burn data/video to double layer discs (50GB) and can write disks at 16X. This is a great sub $100 Blu Ray burner.
