One of the first Blu-ray recorders has finally popped up, BenQ's new BW1000. Unfortunately the 1000 in its name suits it with regard to its $1,000 USD price tag (OUCH!), but then I guess that was to be expected :/


The Dailytech cover all the details.


After months of waiting, it's finally here: the BenQ BW1000 Trio PC Blu-ray recorder. BenQ announced the player just one month ago, claiming it would become one of the more prolific recorders on the market.


The single-layer recorder can record BD-R media at speeds up to 2X, but can read dual-layer Blu-ray media as well. The drive features a single-lens optical pickup with three separate lasers that will read and record Blu-Ray, DVD+/-R and CDRs. BenQ claims the device will also write single-layer DVD+/-R media at 12X, 4X for DVD+/-R DL, 8X for DVD+/-RW, and 32X CAV for CD-R.
