Default BR RW / HD-DVD Drive price keeps dropping.

I would be tempted if the price didn't keep falling every other week.

I remember when I got the first Sony DVD burner that did both formats. I think it was a DRU500 or something. It was over $300 when I bought it. Within a couple months, they were under $100. I recently gave it away in a repair job I did. Now, you can get dual layers that are much faster for $30. There's no way I'm buying into this thing early.

Sony has a Blu-Ray DVD drive coming out Feb. 11th for $200! I'm keeping my eye on that one just in case.
