Can't wait for one of these. Paired with a GPU like the new ATI HD cards and a Core 2 Duo it would make a very nice and reasonable priced DF player. I'm not interested in writing until blanks read DVD DL prices or lower.

Yeah, I'm also looking for a dual format player for a PC so I can build up a HTPC system. Don't care about writing at all (if i was going to do that I'd write to my media share not to a small disc). Anyone actually spot one (model #) on the market yet?

Hi,


All the PC combo drives I've seen announced are also BR writers. Has anyone heard of any read-only combo drives, which will presumably reach sane retail prices in less time?

No BD/HD DVD combo ROM drives as of yet.

Supposedly the LG GGC-H20N and GGC-H20LI have been released, but they still aren't available anywhere. Anybody know anything about what's going on with these?


I suspect PC manufacturers and makers of external peripherals are sucking up all the supply. Anybody?

They are out in Japan.

Here is an article when the drives were first announced.

http://www.engadgethd.com/2007/07/19...id-drives-and/


The dual format reader is supposed to be $400 and the one that writes BDs costs $500.


These drives will pave the way for more combo-PC drives from other companies and help push the cost down for standalone players.


That is why I tell everyone no matter what side they are on, to feel confident with their disc purchases because a year or 2 from now, almost all hardware will read both formats.
