Buffalo, Pioneer show 128GB BDXL disc writers

Both Buffalo and Pioneer have introduced BDXL disc writers for the Japanese market. Buffalo will offer both a USB 2.0-powered external drive, the BRXL-6U2, and an internal BRXL-6FBS-BK model with a SATA interface, while Pioneer's BDR-206MBK is for internal use only. BDXL media can hold as much as 128GB with a four-layer disc, or 100GB on a three-layer disc.

The Buffalo drives can record at BD-R XL discs at 4X, BD-RE XL at 2X and two-layer BD-Rs at 6X. With special software, the discs can support 3D media content playback.

The Pioneer drive can write BD-R/-R DL discs at 6X, BD-RE/-RE DLs at 2X and can also record to DVD and CD media. It has a 4MB buffer.

No prices or release dates were announced for the Buffalo BDXL drives. The Pioneer drive will cost the equivalent of $372 and is due for a release in Japan in mid-November. [One, two via Impress]
