I’m searching for a replacement for my missing Pioneer BDR-206, should I simply take the 207 or is there something better to buy?

Yo ChromeBeauty-

I chose the Pioneer BDR-2207 from Amazon for under $90 shipped and it has been a very reliable writer-eh!

IMO it is more ‘future proof’ than anything on the market ATM for only a few more $ than the BDR-207.

Does it run under a different name in Europe or is it just too new?
I can’t find it in any shop here in Germany.

Essentially, search for any variant of the BDR-207 that supports BDXL, such as the BDR-207M or BDR-207E. The 2207 is the name for the American release of the 207M, and I believe the 207E is the European name for the 207M…though I wouldn’t know if there are just name changes with the same hardware and firmware, but effectively, they all share the same features and quality.

Thanks, if anyone knows what the difference between the M and E versions are please post it.
Only Idea I have is that E could be a Retail and M a Bulk version.

Look here and here.
