I’m not sure if everybody already had Blu-ray drives because I couldn’t access a PC frequently during the recent few weeks so ignore this thread in that case. A South Korean optical burner site, DVDRWinfo.net, released a “preview” for Pioneer’s first PC Blu-ray drive BDR-101A yesterday. The full review will be published later. The sample Blu-ray unit was provided by MIS Korea, the usual Pioneer optical product distributor in South Korea. The unit supports Blu-ray and DVD only. It doesn’t support CD and Toshiba group’s opposing standard HD-DVD. Made in Japan. No date, no price.

I looked at the CDFreaks.com’s main news page and Pioneer forum’s first thread list page and couldn’t find a similar topic. There must be some people reading this who are testing BDR-101A at this very moment. Good luck, Pioneer.
