both these are the utter nuts

but at ?700 just for the R/W drive it will be a longer than a year before people starting buying drives for their pc .. and judging by the review unlike pioneer usual very high standard its not that good either ..

I remember how much DVD & CD writers initially cost. I remember burning at x2 and the burns not always being 100%. I remember a pack of 100 DVD-rs discs costing ?130.00 online.

it is the norm for new technology, as time passes it gets better and cheaper. I didn't expect BR to be any different.
There are are always early adopters or beta testers as i like to call them who will buy this.
