Pioneer, a leading maker of consumer electronics, said that’s starting from Thursday its Blu-ray disc burners were available for personal computers, about half a year after formal introduction.

The Pioneer BRD-101A drive can playback, read, record and re-write DVDs (recordable discs at 8x and rewritable discs at 4x) as well as playback, read and record single-layer 25GB Blu-Ray discs (at up to 2x), but cannot read or write conventional CD and DVD-RAM discs as well as HD DVDs. It is noteworthy that the BRD-101A is designed for Parallel ATA, which has been gradually replaced by Serial ATA on the market.  The device was already certified by numerous technical inspectors, such as T?V already in July, 2005.

This first generation BDR-101A product is targeted towards professional users and technology enthusiasts who will be using the Blu-ray Disc drive for advanced storage needs. Particularly, content creators will depend on Blu-ray disc writers to test and evaluate high definition consumer Blu-ray disc titles during the authoring process before replication, Pioneer explained. The drive will come equipped with a data recording application to transfer digital files to Blu-ray discs.

The BDR-101A will be bundled with Sonic Solutions’ Roxio Blu-ray disc software and blank media by TDK that will enable end-users to store data and recorded content.

Approximate price of the part is around $1000.
