Sony Electronics today unveiled its first internal Blu-ray Disc (BD) rewritable drive for the computer aftermarket.
The new drive(model BWU-100A) supports up to 50 GB of data on BD-R (write once) or BD-RE (rewritable) discs or up to four hours of high-definition video using HDV 1080i on a BD-RE 50GB disc. The new drive is capable of burning a full 25GB disc in about 50 minutes.
it takes like, an hour to burn one disc?!
Higher quality compression, far better value on hardware, extra's included on disk (rather than having to download from Sony's Online service), better independent review scores from both online & print publications. If as these polls prove most of the intelligent public pick the higher quality HD DVD, the majority of publishers will follow.
Here's the proof-
Don't waste your money on bluray, get a format that will stay the course, HD DVD:)
hd-dvd cost more than a blue ray film ! wait some months and a blue ray player will cost the same as the hd-dvd. we know all why hd-dvd cost not so much, because toshiba takes a lost. but how long can they make that ? not long.
HD-DVD burner please, i'll even take a sony hd-dvd burner.
Blu-ray has been proven to be inferior all across the board; i'v cheked them both out just to see for my self the other day. It's too bad you got that sub-par crap in the PS3. #2.4 and #3 you have no idea what you're talking about. people will be educated about both formats and let me tell you; cheaper(as much as half)plus having far better qaulity and more feature's to personalize the experiance is a done deal for HD-DVD. I don't see how Blu-ray can be on top, not even PS3 will save Blu-ray. Holly Wood will follow the consumers not Sony, it's too bad Sony had convinced/trick Holly Wood into believing PS3 will be Gods gift to the world and would be un-stopable. lol
