PC vendors including Hewlett-Packard (HP), Dell, Acer and Asustek Computer want a considerably large reduction in ODM/OEM prices of Blu-ray Disc (BD) Combo and BD-ROM drives, but leading ODM/OEM makers are unwilling to lower current quotes, according to industry sources in Taiwan.

How about first lowering the prices of BD movies … then demand for BDROMs will increase & everyones happy :stuck_out_tongue:

Make your market.

Too many people are playing sports, rather than buying your TV’s? Pollute :stuck_out_tongue:

I find it rediculous that I can buy a 1950’s movie on DVD in the bargain bin @ 3 for $10au … but bluray they want $35-40au a piece … wtf?
