A quick non-Predator related post.
You have no idea how badly i want one of these. LG’s 2nd generation all-format drives. They read and write Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, DVD+/-RW, DL, etc, etc… And they are “only” $500. $400 if you just want to read the new formats and write to old ones. That really isn’t bad at all considering it replaces about $1200 in cutting edge equipment.
But that will sound very familiar to my wife. I talked her into letting me buy an awesome 4 format DVD recorder back when DVD+R and DVD-R were fighting it out. Little did i know that they would both win and both are now standard in every drive. At the time, i thought this Sony drive would be a rarity and i totally misjudged how fast prices would drop. We paid $400 for a drive that only 6 months later cost $95. I still apologize for that one occasionally, just at random points over dinner.
So unless someone is feeling real generous around Christmas-time, i’ll be waiting on these to drop a little more.
Also…i’d like to welcome my friend Jim Craig to the world of blogging. He’s been commenting on my blog a lot (i appreciate dude!) and has decided to launch his own. Check it out: I have strong opinions and i’m gonna tell ya.
Add him to your blog rolls and feeders.
