Pioneer BDR-209DBK -$55 at (48hr special)

Good price for a solid burner, if outclassed by the older 208 series.

good deal, already bought one from amazon for $60 though

Is this drive riplocked?

I think it’s riplocked by default but may be unlockable by starting a rip with MakeMKV and then stopping, at which point you should be able to rip at full speed.

The retail version of the drive, according to Albert, should probably be unlockable using the Pioneer utility. That’ll be a bit more expensive, though I have seen it on Newegg for $75 in the past month or so.

Thanks for the info.
