    Very interesting but I think I would prefer to be able to burn BD discs as well. Also I would rather have a combo HD DVD + BD drive.

    But Pioneer have had a BD-rom DVD writer drive out for months at a much lower price, I can get the Pioneer drive for around £85 ($170) so it's nothing new and a worse spec than the Pioneer as it doesn't write any discs

    Do you have a link to such a drive or at least a model number? Are you sure this drive is sold in the US market? I’ve never heard of it but then again you weren’t very descriptive with respect to anything I could use to actually research this Pioneer BD ROM drive.

    Pioneer bdc-202 got it thanks hddvdsupporter!

    I’m looking but I don’t see it for less then ~$230 USD or so but I’ll keep looking. Personally I think I would prefer a BD burner that can read HD DVD as well. I already have an Xbox HD DVD drive but I would prefer an all in one solution. Ideally I would prefer an HD DVD burner + BD burner in one drive ;)

    Uh, doesn't that site say 298.91? Or, am I dreaming. I realize I've been out of it this week but... :D (And yes, I want one badly. But, with my job status in question right now, I can't be buying anything at all let alone drives.)
