Cheapest internal blu-ray drive

What’s the cheapest internal blu-ray for a pc?

This thread is a keeper.

What?

The cheapest will cost you around £499, if you’re willing to pay that much.

If you ask me. you should be paying that kind of money for a new PC. If you have to pay that kind of money for just the drive then it’s not worth it if you ask me. :disagree:

Yep,your right.That’s why I won’t be buying a blu-ray drive.

£499 (GBP) = US$1,000, too bad for you in the UK, in the US we can find many below US$500. :stuck_out_tongue:

Cheapest is the Pioneer BDC 202, its a bluRay reader combined with a dvd burner, aka combo drive.

Nice find chef,

US$270++ Pioneer BDC-202 5x Blu-ray reader http://www.google.com/products?q=Pioneer+BDC-202

There is also a BDC-S version (actually 2), but I don’t know the real difference yet. Maybe [B]bulk vs. retail[/B], because they all have DVD-RAM write support according to the info.

The BDC-202 starts at €210 here in Germany.

I dont know if CompUSA will ship internationally but they are a trust worthy retailer. If they do ship outside of the US, then you shouldn’t worry

They do according to their policies. :smiley:

Thanks for your info!!
