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.
