Introducing the GGW-H20L, supporting the next generation of optical disc formats. The Blu-ray disc format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc. Not only can you record, rewrite and playback the BD format, you can also read and play HD-DVDs. The drive is also capable of burning DVDs and features the Lightscribe labelling function.

Saw a few posts around for the non writers for around £110-ish. For £40 more you can have the future proofness of Blu-Ray writeability, for the when the media starts to come down, which it inevitably will.

seems like an awesome deal

Voted hot! I bought one of these for £180 not so long ago, and its amazing! It even came with a BD-RW disc too, which was an unexpected bonus!

Hi guys,
My advice is to wait if you can. These type of products drop like a stone in price over a few months. I found this when DVD was the hot product of the month.
Look at the cost of them now! You can get a good one for about £20.
The BD media is far too expensive at the moment too.
I don't think there is a copy protection hack for BD either is there?

Hi, does anyone know roughly how long it would take to burn a full 25GB disc?

First, it can write to dual-layer BD-R discs. With current 2x media, it … First, it can write to dual-layer BD-R discs. With current 2x media, it took an hour to half-fill a 50GB disc, but the drive is capable of 4x writing, so expect that to halve once high-speed discs are available. For single-layer BD-R discs, LG claims a 6x write speed, and we were able to fill a 25GB disc in 21mins 19secs. Writing to DVD was quicker than with Pioneer's drives, the drive filling a DVD+R in just under six minutes and a DVD+RW in just over seven minutes. Writing to dual-layer discs took an unremarkable 27 minutes, though.
