Not to bad, but they take AGES to write on, vs a HDD of the same size, and what is more easier to carry around ??

When you consider the price of these compared to HDD and adding the fact they cost the same price to produce as a DVDR disc they are quite expensive.

5 x Blu-Ray discs = 125gb

1 x 500gb SATA hard drive around £40

I wont touch blu-ray media till it comes down to just above DVDR prices, because its the latest technology they are milking it.

True, prices are rediculous, You would have to be mad to pay for writable blue rays when a HDD is actually cheaper lol.

And then you also have the price of the burner ontop of that for £100+ If it absouloutly has to be a disc then use 3 DVD-dual layers, 50p per disc and £10-£15 for a burner 'lol'

True the prices are taking the mickey but as far Blu-ray rewritables go I bought 2 recently and they were £8 each, cheapest I could find. 5 for £24 is impressive!

I guess this is 'hot' because it's the cheapest so far but....

....whilst it's good prices are falling (so long as they do keep falling) it's also true that the cost of Blu-ray burners & blank media, for most, just make it a pointless & ridiculously expensive waste of time.

It's also well worth remembering that a lot of Blu-ray movie players have 'issues' with playing blank Blu-ray media (it is not as reliable, simple & straight-forward as DVD) and some simply will not play it.

TBH for what it's worth my own view is that they have missed the bus.
I just don't see Blu-ray as a storage media being a big deal in the market.
It could have been, but I just think they have left it far too expensive for far too long (and it still is).

HDDs are about the cheapest and most reliable method of storage right now
(even buying 2 x 500gbs HDDs to use in a nice safe mirror RAID set-up - if you are that paranoid - beats the cost of a Blu-ray burner & an equal amount of blank Blu-ray media!).

Flash drives are just getting bigger and bigger and cheaper and cheaper (16gbs is now ridiculously cheap and this year we can expect 32gb & 64gb to go the same way)

.....and of course DVD burners & blank media remain as usable and convenient as ever.

(it's also worth considering that if big storage sizes really were so important to everyone then the 8.5gb DVD9 blank media would be a hell of a lot bigger a seller than it now is)

Agree with every word. Rep'd

Heat added cos its the cheapest price though - was looking before xmas at one of the big blank media companies and I swear BR RW were something like £25 each, maybe I was looking in the wrong places??

Hi Gixxerman, the flash drives, are they as reliable as the Std. HDD ? I'm thinking about the number of rewrites and image persistency?

All I can say is my own experience is that I have never had an HDD, a flash drive or an SD card let me down in 6yrs now.

HDDS are so cheap now I've been recently been able to buy a couple of 500gb drives, clone my originals and tuck the new drives away as secure copies.
IMO on a £/gb basis that's the easiest way to back up all your hard-to-find photos etc etc
(and all the other stuff you could find again in the net, in theory, but practically it'd be a total pain....and of course preserve all those irreplaceable family pics you wiped from your camera's memory).

(If you do that with your C drive it's also a useful way of making sure you have a working copy of your windows should you ever have serious probems; IMHO it's also a hell of a lot easier swapping out an HDD than trying to mess around with discs)

I know £40 is still £40 but it's a small price to pay for peace of mind for me anyways.

Why not use search - and discover you can qualify for free carriage for that order - if you use one of the offers for scan that's mentioned on almost every single offer on this site... just by adding a little extra to the order?
