Good to hear.
But when will at least 50gig Blu-Ray disks be common (on Newegg for example).
I hope the media catches up to the hardware sometime soon.

It will be a long time for it to be common. When was the last time your burnt a DVD? I haven't burnt a DVD in years simply because there is no need, I have two external hard drives for all my back needs and USB sticks and other flash memory is perfect for moving large files around.

Why should you spend £300 (UK Sterling) on Blu-Ray disc writer that takes about an hour to burn an expensive 50gb disc when the same amount of data can be put on an 500Gb external hard drive that costs £80 in about half that time?

ok ok so if you want to keep some fullHD movies in your hdd...
lets do the math:
1 blu-ray movie its aprox 40GB (whitout the extras)
10 blu-ray movies : 400GB
50 blu-ray movies: 2000GB

so if you want to keep some bluray movies you gonna need a
two terabyte hdd free.
