CPUSlayer worte: Also the price of single layer B-R discs are still $20 a piece, I couldn’t imagine what a double layer would cost.
You need to get out more. Ritek 2x BD-R is $6 at rima.com. Frys.com is selling Panasonic 4x BD-R for $9.99 since many months ago. You can get cheaper rates from ebay!
Anyway, I doubt the price will go more than it used to be last year ($1000 for a 4x BD-R burner). The LG GBW-H20L 6x burner is $280 now. My guess, this Panasonic 8x burner will be hovering around $300-ish.
