MediaStation™ 6x Portable BDXL Blu-ray Writer BRXL-PT6U2VB


The Buffalo USB2.0 Portable Blu-ray™ drive Writer is the ideal solution for users with a laptop or Ultrabook without any ODD installed.

USB bus powered with LED power indicator

Connect the Buffalo MediaStation™ 6x Portable Blu-ray Drive instantly whenever and wherever it's needed. Connecting to computers is simple, with a single USB cable. The MediaStation 6x Portable Blu-ray Drive also features two functions that eliminate the problem of unstable Blu-ray drive operation due to insufficient bus power (power supply) from the computer's USB port. The MediaStation's LED power indicator alerts you when power is insufficient, and the Boost cable can be connected when power is low, allowing you to run the Blu-ray drive even with computers that normally can't be used without an AC adapter.

Ultra-slim and compact

USB cables snap to case for easy mobility

This portable Blu-ray drive features superior portability, and can be used anywhere, with any computer. The unit includes a
"double-cable stowage" features with the standard USB cable and power boost cable integrated that can be snapped together to the chassis. This intelligent setup eliminates the need for any additional accessories, whether the cables are in use or tucked away.

Single tray compatible with standard and 8-cm media

The MediaStation utilizes a tray-type drive. The tray securely holds 8-cm media as well standard 12-cm discs.

M-DISC media permanently preserves your important memories

M-DISC storage media uses a new process that uses a laser to burn data into a storage layer made of inorganic material. This inorganic material is virtually immune to affects from high
temperatures, humidity, sunlight, and other environmental
influences, allowing you to preserve your data for extremely long periods.

Use with standard Mac software

The MediaStation lets you play back and save data using Mac software. It's also great for use with the MacBook Air and other laptops without an internal Blu-ray drive. The software included with the MediaStation lets you save, play back, and edit data using Windows machines.

Supports BDXL media - huge capacity holds over 100GB of data

This Blu-ray drive supports the new "BDXL" standard, allowing over 100GB of data to be saved on a single disc - approximately twice the Blu-ray maximum of 50GB. This is optimal for creators who need to save Hi-Vision video data captured on camcorders and handle large amounts of video and image data.
