Burning BD-R discs on your PC may be closer than you think with more and more BD-R devices making it to the market amidst falling prices and an ever increasing need for cheap and huge storage capacity.

Maximum speed for dual-layer, three-layer and four-layer BD discs reaches 14x, 8x and 6x respectively. The device also writes at 2x for BD-RE discs, DVD±R at 16x, DVD±R DL and DVD+RW at 8x, DVD-RW disks at 6x. In the case of DVD-RAM discs you’ll get 5x of maximum speed; CD-R burning speed reaches 40x, CD-RW 24x.

The drive also comes with 4 MB of cache memory and the Pioneer PureRead3+ technology that improves reading of scratched discs. The device offers some additional software too – Cyberlink PowerDVD 10, PowerDirector, Power2Go 7, InstantBurn 5 and LabelPrint 2.

The Pioneer BDR-208JBK will come out in early November in black only. Pricing is unknown.
