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.

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?

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.

Blig doesn't want to always have to be sifting through Google to stalk his

Um, considering you are Blig Merk's puppet and are too clueless to
realize that, I don't put too much weight into your opinions. No offence,

By far the cheapest way to back up lots of data.

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.

It was this line "DVD drives only got to critical mass due
to piracy. Knock out piracy, and what use does the home user have for it?"

It being Blu-Ray burner for PC.
