Blu-ray price-slash -- Sony announces significant price drops for desktop Blu-ray drives

Prices of Sony internal desktop Blu-ray drives plummet

Sony Australia has announced significant price drops for its two internal desktop Blu-ray drives, the BWU200S and the BDUX10S. The new suggested retail price for the BWU200S is $599 (including GST), which is 30 per cent cheaper than its previous asking price of $899. The RRP of the BDUX10S has dropped from $299 to $249 (including GST), a saving of $50. The new pricing for both products is effective as of yesterday (16 June).

The Sony BWU200S is an internal SATA Blu-ray burner, and one of only a few Blu-ray drives in Australia that records to both 50GB and 25GB BD-R (write once) and BD-RE (rewritable) discs. It also records to 4.7 GB DVD+R/+RW/-R/-RW/-RAM, 8.5GB DVD+R/-R Dual Layer, and CD-R/-RW discs. Up to 4 hours of 1080 HD video can be stored on a single dual layer 50G BD disc. Cyberlink's DVD/Blu-ray software suite is included in the sales package, allowing you to author BD and DVD discs as well as perform general disc burning for BD/DVD/CD. The box also includes a free 50GB BD-R disc and all required cabling.

The Sony BDUX10S is an internal SATA BD-ROM drive offering BD/DVD/CD disc playback. The drive features a Serial ATA (SATA) interface and standard 5.25in form factor for easy installation on desktop PCs running Windows Vista or Windows XP operating systems. CyberLink's PowerDVD BD Edition is also included.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
