Has anyone seen any Blu-ray or HD-DVD readers?

I've only seen Blu-ray burners for PC, but they're way too expensive.

  1. It's better to get a PS3.
  2. pioneer has a $300 blu-ray reader/dvd+-RW pc drive according to anandtech a couple days ago. no idea when or where you can get it.

    It's the planned centerpiece of my planned htpc.

    You can use the 360's add-on hddvd drive on a pc i've heard.
  3. why don't you wait for the guaranteed BUGs to be worked out.

    HD + early adoption = sore ass, lost money.

    make sure you buy the stuff when the industry actually gets around to making it all work properly.
