    Good find looks like the price of BR burners starting to come down a little.

    not bad, so now we need burning software that will backup our HD/Blu-Ray dvds. right now the cost comparison of buying the burner and the blank dvds is far from worth doing

    How much are disks? Is it known if we're going to be able to burn a Blu-ray movie as easy as it is to burn a regular DVD movie? For some reason I just think that Blu-ray will be impossible to copy, makes me think of DVD Audio disks.

    There really does not seem to be any point in buying a Blu-Ray burner right now, at least not for all but a tiny few people. You can't back up your movies with any of the stuff that's out there. They are not economically feasible replacements as a DVD-ROM data disc, as the discs are $20 versus 20 cents for a DVD. About the only conceivable use for them is if you create your own content in hi-def, and want to put it out in BR format, then maybe it's an option, but the cost is still a major sticking point.

    The big selling point of Blu-ray to the MPAA was that it had a strong copy protection. You won't even be able to record HDTV programs onto Blu-ray much less movies as soon as they flick that switch which enables HDCP on HDTV signals. When your recorder sees that HDCP, it'll block you from copying. Blu-ray will just useful for storing data files.

    you raise a very good point but as with all new technology someone will work out how to hack it
