Why cold?
I can't find one cheaper. Everywhere else is between £143 and £200, so isn't £129.99 cheaper?

Original Poster

thanks andywedge! looks to be a good deal to me have reserved one at my local pcworld store, will collect tomorrow.

Shame its being voted cold because people cant read. reat price (at this moment) for this product.

Original Poster

thanks Pepp77 not sure i have quite told what i seen/read right, but for this price. The GGW-H20L can handle both single-layer and dual layer Blu-ray discs (50GB the equivalent of 64 CDs) in either recordable or re-writable formats.and i think play back HD DVD-ROMs.

Wow that's a cheap Blu-ray writer. Voted Hot:thumbsup:

[SIZE="3"]I'm absolutely puzzled why people are voting this cold! I guess it's because they automatically assume it's a reader (which it's not) or it's of inferior quality or performance (which it's not).[/SIZE]
[COLOR="Red"][SIZE="5"]
Come on folks, this is a bargain - read it properly - It's a Blu Ray Writer for under £130!
You've just got to vote this hot![/SIZE]

thanks paulace forv you post!!! not sure why this "Blu Ray Writer " is being voted cold . i sure its the fastest "Blu Ray Writer " on sale for £129.99.

Voted hot by me

I'd check the details on the box if your collecting from store because lets be honest PC World have been know to screw up on descriptions and hardly ever undercut prices!

Cheap discs are all that are needed now.

Currys have got this at the same price but Dixons are still £199.99.

Ok, why would you actually need a Blu writer?

Isn't it today's equivalent of an Iomega Zip writer:?

Surely a redundant technology given its cost, ever-cheaper TB+ hard drives and future cloud storage:thinking:

Discuss:p

Probably because it's been available at this price for a few months now. Hence why not a bargain as such...

Sorry

Yup, it'll be useful for the next 5 years then be replaced by something else (cloud storage is a long, long way off though, we'd all need 300mbit connections and the internet would have to be more secure before that will happen).

Why do you need it right now - at all:?

What would you use it for at such an expensive cost of writer and media that there would not be better and cheaper alternatives?:thinking:

Yeah and we'd need to move into the local BT exchange to get anywhere near 300meg:roll:

Oh please! Piracy of course! Why pay over the odds for a Blu-Ray original (some are worth it of course) when you can make your own 'back up'. Shock. Horror. How dare I? I'll let you into a secret.. People have been copying LP's (remember those?), Compact Cassettes (surely you remember those!), CD's and DVD's for years. Isn't it terrible? So terrible in fact, that Sony for example have produced, blank cassettes, blank CD's blank DVD's and now blank Blu-Ray discs, and the hardware to go with them, even though they are 'staunch supporters of the anti-piracy movement', and are a large media publisher.

Yeh sure. Oh, and by the way I do buy originals when they are worthy of purchase.:whistling:

I think I'll stick with riping them to my HD for now until the disk get cheaper.1tb of disks will cost you around £200 and a 1TB HD only £80. If they just made the films cheaper like the HD-DVD's have been of late at less than £5 it wont be a problem.
I think I stick with my LG reader.

cheapskate58;3450242

DVD writers and blanks were expensive when they first came out, people still bought them and now it's an every day storage medium. There's no reason why Blu-Ray cannot achieve the same.

still the cheapest price on the market i reckon, anyone managed to find it cheaper (sales induced or otherwise)?
