Sony Releases $750 Blu-ray Disc Recorder

| HT & Movies News | Posted: Jul 20, 2006 2:46 am

Although still way too pricey to be considered a mainstream form of media storage just yet, it's good to see Sony have released a Blu-ray Disc Recorder selling at only $750 (compared to the $1,000ish price tags slapped on other models released to date).

 

The DailyTech and XBit report with the details.

 


Sony has released its BWU-100A Blu-ray disc drive for computer systems. The BWU-100A is a standard 5.25" PATA disc drive with playback and recording support for Blu-ray discs. Playback of Blu-ray movies will be supported with the BWU-100A, however, an HDCP compliant graphics card and display is required to playback protected AACS content. A high definition display is also required to experience the full 1080 lines of high definition goodness.
