    FINALLY! I have been waiting for them to do this, for the longest time. I just hope the other manufacturers, now that Lacie is making these external Blu-Ray burners, will jump on the bandwagon and do the same.
  • Hmm...but Will you be able to just burn? I am thinking that you won't be able to watch blu-ray movies b/c of encryption and bandwidth issues.

    Heres to hoping I am wrong!
