I don't think it would be a good idea to buy one of those for quite some time. Burnable blu-ray discs and HD-DVD discs are insanely expensive, and will remain so for a long time (currently they are upwards of $20 per disc.)
Actually... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scription=BD-r $10 for a verbatim from newegg.com, but I know I've seen em as low as $7 a disc. It is in one of the other threads for the BD drives.
