This week Pioneer has announced they have created the world’s smallest external Blu-ray burner in the form of the Pioneer BDR-XD04. The super slim and lightweight Blu-ray burner weighs just 8.5oz and measures just 0.55 inches thick. The Pioneer BDR-XD04 sports a 6x write speed and is fitted with a slower USB 2.0 connection rather than a preferred and quicker USB 3.0 connection.
However it is capable of being powered directly from the USB 2.0 connection, and doesn’t require any additional power supply. Which makes it perfect for travel and portability.
The Pioneer BDR-XD04 also supports all disks from quad-layer 128GB BD-Rs down to CDs, and is expected to arrive in stores later this month for around $150.
