I realise its a good price, but it seems expensive for what it is.

I had considered this in the past but strcitly speaking I have the XBOX HD DVD drive, for for a similar price you are probably better off buying the next model which does not have HD DVD but writes Blu rays a lot faster than this one.

Think about it do you really need HD DVD ? use the external drive from the XBOX on the computer if youreally need to. and get yourself the newer model. Writing a blu ray could take long time in this, I believe the newer model is almost twice as fast as this.

BTW last time I watched a HD DVD was probably a year ago I still have around 30 HD DVD movies sealed to be watched.

Think again do you really need this model ?

do you really need it? no. do you really need anything like this? no

but do you want it? and can you use it? that's another story

you are paying little to no premium for the HD-dvd functionality. it doesn't just read but can burn those discs. that might not be handy to most people, but might to some. bluray media is reasonably cheap right now, and will come down in price. you could rip your HD-dvd discs to your pc with this and reburn them to blurays. of course you could rip with your xbox drive, but it's maybe a bit convenient to have everything all in one and save unplugging and moving your drive from your xbox. no everyone has the xbox and drive so they could take advantage of the last of the cheap hd-dvd discs that are knocking about. it's also handy for that ultimate htpc that can play everything

Heat/rep given to OP! :thumbsup:

Just bagged one for £116.39 delivered after 3% Quidco. Was after a XBOX360 HD-DVD drive in order to watch my Ultimate Matrix box set (currently still sealed!) and that should save me £20+ purchasing a second hand one. :-D

Thanks.

Mind you can burn HD video on to DVDs too. As long as your films are no more than 50-60mins DVD-R is perfect for this.

Blu-ray blanks and burners are still a bit of a luxury for most and if people don't have one yet they people could probably wait a bit longer. Personally, I've avoided a burner and just use 1TB HDDs. Much cheaper (even if you buy another one for a backup).

I will -no doubt about it- buy a Blu-ray burner when they hit £50.

Nice find, I had an LG HD-DVD/blu-ray drive that failed on me (no blu-ray) but only got a refund, I couldn't find a replacement anywhere. This is very tempting.

This is still a great price "for what it is". Obviously there are some folk who don't recall the first DVD writers that came on the market - when they became "affordable", the were around this price!

For those who want to make their own Blu-Ray movies, camcorder or otherwise, you can't do it any cheaper. Panasonic have released the first stand-along recorders and the cheapest is around £350.

This is hot for what it is.

I'm pretty sure this model does Blu-ray only and not HD-DVD quoted OP

Yes, I think you're right - the only references I can find with HD DVD for this drive are on DSG sites.

these will be £64.99 in 12 months time, £32.99 18-24 months time.

good value for the now even though optical discs are on the way out :thumbsup:

May as well buy a 2tb hard drive for 100 quid to store all your stuff imo.

Once the drive is bought, storage is pretty much the same price on Blu-rays as what you'd pay for a 2tb drive, if not marginally less. For example a ten-spindle of single-layer Blu-Rays can be had for about £12, offering 250gb - give or take - of storage. A two tb drive offers eight times this and so 8 x £12=£96.

Personally I'd rather have movies etc on a Blu-ray disc than a harddrive, simply because optical discs are more portable - in terms of weight/size/not needing power - than harddrives. And looked after, they'll last longer than a harddrive will.

Rec'd mine yesterday. Model BH10 and no mention of HD-DVD support anywhere on the box. Part of the reason I ordered it! :x

There's not been a Multi-Drive from LG for ages. Who told you difference?

Best bet is to return the unit if it's no good or if you need the Blu-ray get a HDDVD XBox 360 drive and either use the external USB function (supplied) or remove it from the box and pop it in your PC base unit. You may need a PATA/SATA convertor. A separate HDDVD drive is a great idea especially when you can pick them up for pennies.

I'd be amazed if LG's next Blu-ray range is any more than €100 with weeks of release.
