I find the potential 100gb+ to be exciting.

Imagine a personal BD player with thousands of lossless songs.

That would blow the ipods away.

You could backup your entire cd collection on 1 disc and carry it around all day.

Yes, very exciting idea.

Couldn't do that with my CD collection. Nevertheless...

If your whole CD collection fits in 100GB then how would that be better than a 100GB iPod?

And who wants to go back to lugging a huge player the size of a disc around. Those days are over for me.
Now it would be great to backup data but not to actually use in a so called portable player.

Yeah, nobody is going to want a BD device for portability. You can already get laptop-sized hard drives (physically about the size of an iPod) that hold about 100GB, why on earth would you want to go to a 12cm optical disc?

In fact, in terms of raw storage capacity, the initial prices of blank 50GB Blu-Ray discs are more expensive in cost-per-GB terms than external USB hard drives...

There's more potential for Blu-Ray disc prices to come down a lot faster than HDD prices, but it will take time and wide acceptance of the format.

Yeah. This is a cost per GB scenario for offline storage. When the BD get to couple bucks a piece range, DVD will be dead as an offline storage media. Then when the larger 50gb or 100gb BD get to a couple bucks or less that will start to cut into the magnetic hard drive storage dollars.

What is the seek time and transfer rate for Blue Ray drives and media anyways?

By the time affordable 100GB recordable discs come you'll be able to buy a 100GB iPod which is still easier than carrying around a 5" disc and player. Not too sure i'm understanding the logic here.

That's going to be tough. Blu Ray has a ways to go before they can matche the price/Gigabyte of HDD today but when you toss in perpendicular recording bumping HDD up by another %30 it's going to be harder.

I think Blu Ray will become cheap but I don't know how long it'll take to get to $2 if ever at all.

I wonder if anybody caught this little bit:
Quote:
There are two types of players because some consumers may not have convenient Internet access where their player is located, so this feature may not be needed by everyone.

From the beginning, all models of either player type support playback of interactive BD-Java content.
Of course, I expect someone will chime in that they've heard rumors that it won't be available.

Well until I see BD-Java actually doing something really cool I'm rather nonplussed about the whole Interactive Layer hyperbole.
