Inexpensive Blu-Ray Computer Reader

I need a BlueRay reader that is inexpensive and that can read disks. I love the XBox-360 hooked up to my CPU, and though I know there is nothing quite that inexpensive for BlueRay, I am hoping there is some solution.

Thanks

GJ[/QUOTE]I could be wrong but i thought the X-Box 360 has a HD DVD drive in it.

It does… I want a low cost BLUE RAY drive… I got the XBOX360 drive

zevia probably has some advice for you.

Sorry i am not any help to you :doh:

It’s not as cheap as XBOX HD-DVD player ($179 + 7 HD-DVD movies) but these are currently the cheapest reader:

$259 Pioneer BDC-202BK 5x Blu-ray Reader http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827129015

$275 LG GGC-H20L 6x/3x Blu-ray/HD-DVD Reader http://www.ncixus.com/products/index.php?sku=26553 (currently out of stock)

I know the OP asked about BLU-RAY but HD-DVD Players are really coming down in price and they are not waiting for the holiday season.
[B]Wal-Mart[/B] is dropping the price of the [B]Toshiba 1080i HD-A2 HD DVD[/B] player to $198 USD starting on November 3rd. I think most folks cant even tell the difference between 1080i and 1080p unless the screens are next to each other.
[B]Circuit City[/B] has begun selling the player also at the same price. At last check, it was in stock at most stores and online even included free shipping. So I think the Blu-Ray players will also come down in price very soon. I think after Christmas we will see these units under 100USD, remember this is just my opinion, I have seen it happen before.

Also, if you can wait a couple months, Sony will have blu-ray reader sub $200. News: http://www.engadgethd.com/2007/10/12/sony-aiming-for-sub-200-blu-ray-pc-reader-in-early-2008/
