Default Anyone else getting a Pioneer BDC-202BK BD-ROM?

Its supposed to be out in the UK in the next 3 weeks. I'm tempted to pre-order it but worried that it might be a lemon. Reviews of it aren't very detailed at the moment. So, is anyone else getting one?

BD-ROM, you mean for PC?

it better be cheap. I personally not in big hurry to get anything. So far the only thing that did catch my attention is that 4X LG, but it cost over 1200, last time i checked.

Yeah, its a sata internal blu ray drive for PC. Well, its just a bit more than an xbox 360 hd-dvd drive.

I'm buying a BD writer, not ROM drive.

I've got an xbox 360 HD-DVD connected to my PC/HDTV and the picture quality is astounding. The only problem is I've watched Tokyo drift about 5 times in HD and Batman Begins about 4 times in HD (including last night). As blu ray has the other half of the HD catalogue, I am desperate for a blu ray drive and some new films!

There are some drives that read both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray available now for around $500, IIRC. I know LG makes one, don't remember the exact price of theirs though.

EDIT: Not only does LG make one, it can also write dual layer BD-E (rewritable blu-ray discs) as well as read HD-DVD.

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.)
