LG 8X bluray reader (CH08LS10.AUAR) is out VERY soon:)

This new drive LG CH08LS10.AUAR replaces the older and highly popular: LG GGC-H20L which was 6x at reading bluray discs and yet this replacement is approximately the same price :slight_smile:

LG CH08LS10.AUAR = RETAIL BOXED
LG CH08LS10.AUAU = OEM (not boxed but will probably include some bluray software)

The retail version is on pre-order on other places for £81.64, ocuk dont have it listed yet, hope ocuk can add the oem version to pre-order.

There is no HD-DVD playback with this drive, the older 6x model does but as HD-DVD is dead LG removed it probably due to licensing costs.
