Price? :smiley:


A Google search revealed an article in Techshout.com that read, "The internal BR-816FBS blu-ray burner will cost 39,100 yen , while the external BR-816SU2 burner will carry the price tag of 44,500 yen."
That makes them approx. $362 USD to $412 USD.


The LG’s out there now are about half that price. Why worry about faster drives untiul the price of the media drops in price.
