"The BenQ BW1000 will be available in the market as from end of August 2006 at a suggested retail price of € 799,00 including VAT. "


I bet HD-DVD PC writers will be cheaper. As is the stand alone player for 500 dollar/euro compared to 1.000 for most BR stand alone's

Is this really a big deal they still put most PC games on CD-Rom and DVD and DVD-rom have been out forever so i dont see this being a big deal for your PC in a "normal" house-hold so to speak

i gues what i was trying to say fr the everyday average Joe DVD format does fine for everything they want to accomplish and i dont see people rushing out to get this to watch a Blu-ray movie on they're computer
