They don't have a price on the site but Philips and Pioneer have said
around $495 earlier in the year.

    Looks like this is going to turn into a war of two formats ala DVD-R and
    DVD+R. I'm going to sit out this next round of burners for a while and see
    who emerges as the clear winner. Anyway, there's no pressing need.

    DVD-R won the war.

    Of course it did. If you re-read my post, I used the word ala, as in it
    looks like we will have another format war on our hands between HD DVD and
    Blu-ray.

    Yeah, I know, I'm just saying I remember a few years ago some bozos
    telling me that the Plus R was better and would win.

    Plus R works for backing up PS2, but the majority of DVD players won't
    even read Plus R. Most people that buy blank DVDs pirate movies, not
    pirate games like you do. :)

    Most DVD players do not play the Plus R format. Maybe new ones, try
    putting a Plus R in your apex.

    What's the point? Only serious businesses have a use for them and there's
    other options out there. CD drives DVD drives only got to critical mass due
    to piracy. Knock out piracy, and what use does the home user have for it?

    and ps2 that read both just fine ?

    What makes you say that? Most DVD players read both I can't remember the last PC
    burner that didn't do both and quite a lot of stand alone DVD recorders do both
    (along with + & - RW). Walk into any high street electronics retailers and you
    will find piles of blank disks for each type, the only real looser was DVD RAM
    that fell by the wayside when HDD & DVD recorder combos started to hit the
    streets at the same price point.

    Most do. Maybe a few old ones don't but I've never had a problem with plus or
    minus in DVD players from £30 to over £500.

    Currently, BluRay discs cost 45 bucks for 23 gig. 2 bucks a gig is hardly
    the cheapest way to back up lots of data, my friend. Especially when DVDs
    are closer to 9 cents a gig and need less than 5 per BluRay.

    Heck, external hard drives are a better cost performer than BluRay.

    No, BluRay is not the cheapest way to back up lots of data by a long shot.

    Which, goes back to square one. What's the point for a BluRay drive in a
    PC? CD and DVDs were driven by piracy.

    I used to do that, then found that a networked HDD was far easier to
    use and as a result I back up far more often.
