    Hello all,

    I'm trying to find information pertaining to these 2 drives, BDR-S11J-BK vs BDR-211UBK but Pioneer's site doesn't list anything on the former.

    They are both 16x drives are can read Ultra HD Blu-Ray. What sets them apart? There seems to be a 50% price difference between them.

    Thanks in advance.

    If I remember correctly, they are the Japan vs EU / Other editions of the same drive

    Thank you. I almost bought it with the intention of playing 4k UHD Blu-Ray discs as they support AACS 2.0, but I then realised that I could use my existing LG BH16NS55 drive to decrypt the same discs with RedFox AnyDVD HD if I supplied the decryption keys. The same trick would not have worked on these new AACS 2.0 drives, so it's good that I didn't get them.
