Pioneer BDR-203

16 July 2009
  • Summary: It's a good -- though not great -- performer with standard DVDs and CDs and can play back but not record to Blu-ray Discs. The Pioneer BDR-203 BK gets favorable and thorough professional reviews from testers at CDRInfo.com and CDFreaks.com. About.com also recommends the Pioneer drive, though the review is general and very short.
  • Pros: Burns Blu-ray Discs, Good value for a Blu-ray burner
  • Cons: DVD-RW and CD-R burning disappointing, No LightScribe support

Pioneer BDR-203BK Blu-ray drive review

10 March 2009
  • Summary: Assessing the true capabilities of the Pioneer BDR-203BK was somewhat difficult. We couldn’t push its BD-R facilities to rated specification, and at present we can’t even be sure of its retail price, although we expect it to be around £220, in line with the eight-speed Buffalo BR-816FBS.

  • Conclusion: So the standards are set high with this one. Pioneer BDR-203BK can be used for fast backups of data on Blu-ray discs, as well as for entertainment allowing you to watch your favorite BD movies on your PC or HD screen. It is a strong competitor for the other 8x BD Burners and allows you to burn at 8x even with previous generation discs certified for lower speeds. The drive can be purchased online for approximately $230.

Pioneer BDR-203BK

10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Hay varias razones por las que comprar una grabadora: para poder reproducir películas en formato Blu-ray, para poder grabar los vídeos en alta definición que haga cada usuario y para poder guardar grandes cantidades de datos y la grabadora Pioneer BDR-203BK cumples con todas estas razones y además de una velocidad más que aceptable. La unidad graba un disco Blu-ray a 8x, la velocidad media de la última generación de grabadoras que han llegado al mercado.

Pioneer BDR-203BK

19 November 2009
  • Summary: Итоги тестирования можно обрисовать одной фразой. Компания Pioneer не ударила в грязь лицом, ее привод смело можно рекомендовать любому пользователю, если бы мы давали награды вроде "выбор редакции" привод бы ее получил. Технические характеристики BD/DVD/CD частей привода находятся на самом современном уровне и способны обеспечить комфортабельное использование привода большинством пользователей.
