Yea, right, sicknote. :whistling: Professional Blue-Ray is already widely in use in Sony's XDCAM pro video. MacPro is next like they've done with firewire and usb...

or £115.56 (if you are a member) delivered from SVP for the Pioneer BDC-202 DVD Writer / Blu-Ray Reader Drive

@ stu8 - you haven't even included a make or model or a link in your post... I take it this is in the today only section, which can only be accessed by the today only tab at the top of tha page.

It could be the Pioneer BDC-S02BK 5x Blu-Ray Reader Combo DVD±DL Writer internal black - Retail inc Software.

Be warned there's a dual HDDVD/Bluray drive coming for about 190-200 next month - like DVD+RW vs DVD-RW, the dual formats will become the norm :-)

Terrific price for this though.

Thanks emmajk42

the main reason this is such a good deal is that its the retail version which includes powerdvd ultra which would cost $99 buy its self your post is the OEM version ie no software

Long after Betamax had gone,Sony invented and invested huge amounts of money into UMD movies and SACD neither of which took off.The jury is still out regarding both HD formats.I'm not going to jump to either ship just yet.I work in the industry and general feeling amongst most customers is they are perfectly happy with DVD (Just as they were with Audio CD/MP3,hence the commercial failure of DVD-Audio and SACD).Plus the fact both Paramount and Dreamworks studios have both ditched the format doesn't bode well (No Transformers !:-( ).Cheap for a drive if you want one,Shame the media is still so expensive tho.

I totally agree. My gut feeling is that Blu-Ray will be popular since all the other film producers besides the two you mention have opted for it. But let's face it, its a lot of money to spend on players and media when DVD is perfectly adequate.

Software for playing back HD-DVD or Blue-Ray is currently not cheap so having it bundled with hardware is the cheapest way to get it. WinDVD 8 supports both disc formats and has been reduced to $70. Nero can also playback both discs types but by the time you buy the full version and the add-ons it may well cost more than WinDVD.

I think it’s a good deal if you want Blu-Ray support on a PC right now.

This can only read Blu-Ray discs, not burn them, so the media price isn’t of relevance.

So, your deal represents ]http//ww…312 which only shows up at your (ex-P&P) price via ]https//se…312 (followed from the ]Today only section).
It's still £124.53 once P&P is in.

If their today only page is correct with their prices changing at 12pm, you only have another 55 minutes anyway.

Where does it actually say it comes with Power DVD ultra? I can only see retail software?
Could be a cutdown version!

I need PowerDVD Ultra..
and a Blu-Ray drive

PowerDVD ultra is £4 on Ebay.

I saw that...but figured it must be rather dodgy?

I agree with pete.

The difference between DVD and Blu Ray/HD DVD is not as vast as it was with Video Tapes and DVD. That's why I doubt either format will be as big.

It is being sold as legit for £4.

With respect, that would be a great answer to the question: Are Sony the sole inventors of Blu-Ray? But that wasn't my question, lol.

it doesn't take a degree in pyschology to understand what you are getting at in your question. hence my comment i.e. you are confusing blu-ray with being a solely sony product when it isn't.

Are you a politician, perchance? I'm tempted to 'do a Paxman' but I feel it's not worth the effort. I'll just take it as 'they haven't actually won a format war yet...

Question for Sony fans: Have they ever won a 'format war' ?



How many format wars have they been in? One which they indeed did lose. Minidisc didn't take off, but is still used in the music industry to this day. UMDs did fail, but that again is aimed at a portable market. Betamax was aimed at the home market, and it failed. I can't comment on that too much as I wasn't around then. Neither Blu Ray or HD DVD will entirely dominate the market for a long long time.


anh_duong schooled you and you still can't take it...

Being schooled by a Sony fanboy? :whistling: Sounds a bit sinister . I think the answer you people can't quite bring yourself to admit to yourselves let alone others is SONY HAVE NEVER WON A FORMAT WAR, either one they have 'invented' or one they have been one of the original adoptees of. Fact?

Tbh you sound like more of a fanboy than him. I honestly don't give a damn if Blu Ray or HD dvd win. I just feel the need to respond to your ignorance.

Again, Sony have lost one format war. Fact.

csiman

yeah right - if you only want 15 minutes of programme :whistling:



At typical HD rates with DD+ 1.5mbit 16/48 sound, you get around 60 mins.

If HD was going on 9GB DVD9s, they'd probably use 720p at around 3.5GB/hour.
