Again we see another huge spec sheet from Pioneer, it’s almost too much to take in to be honest. From looking through it, it can do EVERYTHING a top end DVDRW can do with the added functionality of a Blu Ray player, there doesn’t appear to be anything missing it even writes DVD RAM. Very impressive indeed, lets hope it lives up to expectations.

There is no software included as standard but being an oem drive this is only to be expected.
