Strangely, more expensive in their "today - only" section.

Great price for the current market, But since I have no need as of yet, I'll hold off until they reach ~£50.
Voted hot though as it's a great deal.

looks like their on the way down, maybe down to the reasonable region of £50-60 in 6 month. Hopefully bd-r will come down to 50p each aswell! we can all hope!

it'l be longer than 6 months before they go down to £50

simplex - explain ps3 price drop vs launch




what price drop its still around the £200 mark, then nothing forcing it lower, and im not on about the initial price when it came out,it was new tech so it was marked up,take the ps2 now, what can you get it for, they always half the price or there abouts then it stays at that price unless there is new technology, so it will stay around the same price for a while,in both cases,just drop by 10/15%,

ps3 launch price was over £400, a year ago it was £300.

my point is that no new tech has come along to drive the ps3 price down - which is my issue with your comment; it doesn't have to be new tech to drive prices down it can be mass production of the same unit.

The price on bluray writers will fall like they did on DVD writers, which fell nicely well before bluray was around.

as you know everything is marked up to cover costs as quick as possible, and yes it was nearer the £500 mark when it came out, there were enough people out there to buy at that price hence the price and other factors. Now there is no new tech to follow which can replace ps3 at the moment not even the 100gb blu ray as they will not work on the ps3 as they are now,so nothing is forcing it down. if it had competition it would drop in price, dropping it now would be a no brainer

yeh its about time they fell in price, but in honesty i cant see many people buying these, when the first CD-r + DVD-r came out i paid over a 100 quid for each drive. For Blu-Ray i dont even think i will bother getting one or a player, i'm more than happy with my 1tb hard drive internal+external for keeping all my Tv+movies (avis + mkvs) on. I cant be assed with the hassle of the Discs anymore, i got a stack of blank CD and DVD that have been there for over 6 months, only very occasioanly do i make a music CD and everything i download is on hard drive.

yes blu ray prices will drop through mass production and useabiltiy on other formats/ levels (new technology), its happened with everything before this and will happen with everything here after

well they have already developed the 1tb format and capable player, but thats years away, and anything can happen in that time,i really cant see discs being around in 7/8 years, far better ways to store media already out there

simplex - what new tech forced down the price of PS3 from £300 a year ago? all I'm saying as you seem to follow is that it's not just new tech that force prices down

there was a bigger demand in blurays(films) so more bluray players were developed and sold, new technology at that time was the cheaper bluray players with more features compatability

so not economies of scale from the greater volume PS3 production and the components reducing in price? this IMO will reduce the price of bluray writers, not the entrance of bluray v.2.0 as you suggest.

but that would be up to them to reduce price, why would they reduce price if there is no need (no competition) it doesnt mean that if you can make it cheaper it will become cheaper for the mases, they will not force their own hand until it is forced by others,thats a given, im sure this thread was originally about a bluray writerfor your desktop haha

it's a luxury item (i.e. you don't NEED it), the masses may choose not to buy it at certain price points therefore pushed down by something other than new tech but the demand at certain prices. and yes... I agree back to topic... it's too expensive for me at this time, I'll wait 6 months for the price to come down

wouldnt mind one myself but like you say for me...its not needed yet so not an essential buy, maybe at the right price

Good price, cheers - my camcorder is full HD and although I can burn AVCHD to DVD, at 1920x1080 you can only fit about half an hour on, so a Blu-ray writer is tempting. The only downside is that it's LG and their kit is absolute kak.
