It’s unfortunate that this drive will likely be killed off soon. With HD DVD being dead and Toshiba trying to kill off everything HD DVD related, this drive and it’s big brother that burns Blu-ray will likely be eliminated for Blu-ray only drives. I have this drive and absolutely LOVE it. If you’re in the US grab one from newegg for 229 while you can. Although if you haven’t bought any HD DVD’s then there’s no real need for a dual format drive anymore.
