When can be available 25GB and 50GB Rewritable BD ???
not near in future ?
Thanks :slight_smile:


#2

Have not heard of anything but that doesn’t mean anything :stuck_out_tongue:

Though the Buffalo BR-816FBS is still only 2x for BD-RE maybe it won’t be soon.

The absolute newest drive out in Japan is this one that came out on Sept 13th. Only does 2x bd-re.

Also both Sony and TDK Japan have a bunch of new discs coming out around the 20th, including 6x bd-rs, but no 4x bd-res. And prices are coming down a bit on all the bd-rs with the new discs, but bd-res are staying exactly the same.

So yeah… “maybe it won’t be soon” :slight_smile:

Sure not a problem. I check here once a day or so.

Disclaimer I gotta say sometime I guess if I’m gonna keep posting here and the subject turns towards ebay: I’m also a media seller in Japan but I absolutely did not come here to spam or shill or any of that, not even gonna tell you my store info (though you can probably figure it out I guess if you look hard). I’ve been reading this forum for a while now and have learned a ton (you guys know your stuff!) and only created an account to hopefully contribute something back as I kinda have the inside track on all things JP blu-ray atm. Please don’t take anything I post as anything more, this stuff is interesting to me, it’s nice to have a place to talk about it. :slight_smile:

[quote=Burnsama;2127022]25GB BD-RE :iagree: 50GB BD-RE :disagree: ( and Very exepensive )[/quote]How much is your expensive? :slight_smile:

Yap $60 each is expensive.

How about for example this 5 pack of TDK BD-RE DL (50GB) for $100 + shipping.

Look around more. :wink:

Thx for this news update. I have one of the predecessors (7-8 years old) of the LF line (LF-D521U).

I hope this new LF drive will be Made in Japan…

Those are BD-R “Write once” not BD-RE “Re-writable”

I think it may be another few months minimum :sad:

Also there is No 4X BD-RE Burner :sad:

If I’m right the 4x BD-RE spec isn’t even finalized yet. :eek:Then again specs do not hold drive manufacturers back normally.
