Pioneer BDX-PR1MC, BDX-PR1MA, BDE-PR1ME

I just found out, that Pioneer Japan updated it’s Japanese site concerning their professional PR1M drives in January. It seems that the new BDX-PR1MC can only read and quality check the media, but cannot write (!). BDX-PR1MA can write and read, but not check. BDE-PR1ME might be for loaders, but I’m not sure. I couldn’t find any specs…

If you crawl through Almedio Japan’s site, you won’t find Mitsubishi’s enterprise grade 100GB-BDXL discs (AABF25RTST) anymore, that were tuned the the old PR1MC/PR1MA drives (MID VAMKM-IMk)…
