Not so sure about that, I believe one of the major holographic development companies recently went out of business.

I’m hopeful that the new quad layer Blu-ray Discs will be useful, but I’ve got to be pessimistic because the industry still has trouble manufacturing quality 2 layer dvdr discs.

Wow that’s some price tag! :eek:

I think I’ll need to wait a while for that one. :wink:

Interesting story though.

Just what we need, yet another overpriced HD format just when we finally MIGHT be able to afford normal Blu-Ray stuff.
I’ve got my nifty Lg GGW-H20L that I’ve only burned maybe 5 BD disks with becuase the blanks are too spendy but I wanted the capability for when prices dropped and I started getting more movies and blanks.

If I get it without a HDD, can I get it for $1100, and then stick a $200 2TB HDD in or what?

That’s a huge markup … for the 2TB version …
Turns out the markup on every component of a new technology is 1200-1500%, even the old-reliable components :wink:
