Hurry up and wait

Over at Tech Spot is a review of a drive you will never buy. The good news being that it is a Blu-Ray drive capable of writing and rewriting, but the problem is that it costs just short of $1000, and it's replacement that will be coming very soon costs about half of that. You can check out the review to see what this current drive does, but both Tech Spot and I recommend waiting for the cheaper and faster model.
"The fact is we have had the LG GGW-H10NI Super Multi Blue drive in our hands for a couple of months now, however
we did not know in full what to do with it. In one hand, the GGW-H10N is the most advanced optical drive you can
get for the PC today, with the capacity of reading and rewriting Blu-ray discs, reading HD DVD discs, and handling
all other standard media tasks with DVDs and CDs.
But just like Steve Jobs blatantly put it recently when he announced price cuts for the iPhone: "that's what
happens in technology." Today, the GGW-H10NI is still available for a reduced price of $850, while many are still
waiting for its successor, the GGW-H20LI which will carry a more appealing price tag of $500."
