The BDR-XD05W is one of the world's smallest and lightest BD/DVD/CD portable burners supporting BDXL. The ultra-compact USB 3.0 drive is ideal for Mac users or for those who already have software. The BDR-XD05W can write to BDXL1 discs, Blu-ray discs and is backwards compatible to support DVD and CD media. Not only is the BDR-XD05W one of the smallest and lightest Blu-ray drives in the market, but its also one of the fastest with speeds up to 6x2 for BD-R and BD-R DL media.
The BDR-XD05W also has unique features such as PowerRead™, Auto Quiet mode, and PureRead2+. PowerRead3 can provide smoother movie playback when a disc has fingerprints or minor surface scratches. Auto Quiet mode intelligently adjusts the disc rotation speed to reduce noise (useful while watching movies or listening to music), and PureRead4 automatically adjusts the drive parameters to minimize sound glitches during music playback. Auto Quiet mode and PureRead can be configured as well as enabled and disabled with the Pioneer BDR-XD05W Drive Utility. The utility is available for download here.
The portable device, measuring only 5.2" (W) X 0.55" (H) X 5.2" (D) and weighing a mere 8.46 ounces, also has the ability to be powered directly via USB (no AC adaptor needed).
In a Mac OS environment, Finder can be used to read and write to BDXL, Blu-ray, DVD and CD media, and DVD Player can play back DVD movies. Blu-ray playback requires additional software (not included). Of course other Mac software that supports optical drives can access the BDR-XD05W also.
