Burnin the Blu-ray way

Subject: Storage | June 22, 2006 - 12:14 PM |

ExtremeTech managed to find a real, live Blu-ray DVD burner, the Pioneer BDR-101A.  Drop by and find out just how long it takes to burn 25GBs onto a DVD, and if you feel like paying the ~$1,000 to get one for yourself.

"After a longer-than-expected gestation period, Pioneer is now shipping the BDR-101A Blu-ray recorder

for the PC. Before we dive into the specs and performance testing, let's take a quick look at Blu-ray,

what it is, and what it's not.

Blu-ray Disc is an optical storage medium with capacities of 25GB (single layer) and 50GB (double

layer). The standard was jointly developed by members of the Blu-ray Disc Association, though Sony and

Philips were the chief technology drivers in the organization. The Blu-ray Disc Association now

consists of some 170 companies, including hardware, software and media manufacturers."
