theres no need to wait anywhere, we have the internets

I think maybe 7 will have a more robust drm that the movie companies will trust for the HD downloadings

Maybe he was a HD-DVD fanboy and is in denial

Seriously though we need Blu-ray to own... especially when I paid over $400 AU for a PC Blu-ray player

Reminds me of Star Trek again. Remember those little "cards" they carried in the original series (1966) that contained pre-recorded data on them.

That drive is badass! Can't find out what the warranty is for it though.

Now THX says they full supported Blu-ray and THX scientist never said Blu-ray is dead.

http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/multime...Scientist.html

How very odd, guess it all misunderstand.

QFT, transfering blu-ray quality data to a flash device in stores is a long way off. Not because of size limitations, but rather because of transfer speeds. With a sustained 50MB/s write speed, it would take about 17 minutes to copy 50GB of data to such a device. Getting that much throughput on a USB flash drive with atleast 50GB of space isn't happening now, and won't be for quite a while, let alone at speeds fast enough or at prices low enough for convenience.

Not sure about USB 2.0's 50MB/s. Accorded to wikipedia, Hi-speed USB 2.0 give 60MB/s, it take about 14 mins to write 50GB. With next generation USB 3.0 will give 600MB/s that will take over a min to write 50GB.

I agree with the guy, Blu-ray and other optical media's days are numbered, but obviously not dead.
