Pioneer BDC-2202 BD-ROM drive

PC Magazine
14 May 2014
  • Conclusion: The Pioneer BDC-2202 BD-ROM drive is a great idea, but priced about $150 too high. We suggest waiting for lower prices.
  • Pros: Capable DVD burning. Blu-ray movie playback. Lower price than Blu-ray burners.
  • Cons: At $300, you're still paying too much for the privilege of watching Blu-ray movies.

Pioneer BDC-2202B5PK

16 July 2009
  • Summary: The Pioneer BDC-2202B5PK is available in several different configurations -- such as the BDC-202 and BDC-S02BK -- that vary slightly in packaging or included software, but are otherwise identical. The best reviews can be found at CDRInfo.com and CDFreaks.com, which deliver long and detailed reports that will especially appeal to the technically savvy. The review at ExtremeTech.com is also detailed, but perhaps a little easier to digest.
  • Pros: Plays Blu-ray Discs, Good write quality
  • Cons: Expensive, 12x burner is slow, Compatibility can be a problem
