Sony Announces Second Gen PC Blu-ray burner

Sony's newest Blu-ray burner cuts 50GB disc burn time in half

Sony announced today a new updated internal Blu-ray burner for PC. The new drive doubles the write speed as compared to previous Blu-ray BD-R burners inside computer systems. The new BWU-200S Blu-ray burner cuts burn time in half allowing a full 50Gb BD-R disc to be burned in about 45 minutes. Previous drives were 2x drives and the burn time was around 90 minutes for a BD-R disc.

Nice upgrade but I still refuse to buy one till they a full burn takes less than 20 min. Which if this pace keeps, should be around 4-5 months.

waiting for a big price drop on these burners. 600$ is just too much for a burner.

But I'll wait for 8x burn speed.

Luckily the burn speed per multiplier is bigger than DVD, which rocks. 50GB's of data in less than 20 minutes? Dang technology is coming fast.
Also must be less than $350

this is why all the ps3 games take longer to make they finish the game easy, no problem, but then it takes a couple weeks extra to burn all the disks.
Edit: i own a ps3 by the way

They press the discs not burn them, so you're wrong. BD-+R burns, BD-ROM is pressed.

heck, when the CD Burner came along, I waited for a price I can get. like under 150 lols. same thing with the DVD burner. It's just a matter of time where it's in my price range.
