So I wonder who will be the first to buy this one and let us know what it's like when it comes out.
BenQ have announced its first 'Trio' writer - the BW1000 - a triple writer that encompasses BD, DVD and CD format support.
Press Release: The BenQ BW1000 supports all Blu-ray Disc formats at 2X read and write, as well as the interface of the future â€“ Serial ATA, which secures the data bandwidth while playing back high-definition contents, even for the most dynamical scenes.
With BenQâ€™s BW1000, users can easily transfer high-definition home videos and art works to BD-R and BD-RE media, either 25GB or 50GB version, to share and store premium contents with convenience.
BenQ BW1000 features revolutionary SolidBurn and Write Right technologies. SolidBurn automatically learns and optimizes the writing settings for recordable media and makes over-speed writing feasible and stable, delivering stunning drive intelligence to help users write any media at the desired speed.
BenQâ€™s Write Right technology provides thorough protection during the writing process, which includes Seamless Link (for buffer-under run protection), dynamical jitter calibration (for real-time writing quality consistency) and Walking-OPC (for real-time writing power compensation) features.
I personally will be waiting to see which of the Blue-Ray/HD format becomes dominant before I splash out as I don't want to be stuck with the betamax of writers
