The Pioneer BDR-101A Blu-ray recorder
$1000 burning a hole in your pocket?
For those who cannot wait to get on the Blu-ray train, Pioneer's BDR-101A PC Blu-ray recorder is just starting to trickle into the retail channel. Tiger Direct has just listed the BDR-101A
for sale at a mere $999.99
. Many analysts had speculated that Pioneer would drop the price of the BDR-101A significantly after NEC and Toshiba both announced PC HD-DVD recorders for under $500.
The HD-DVD camp currently does not have a recordable device, nor media, but Toshiba currently has the only next-generation set top player available on the retail market, the
HD-DVD Toshiba HD-A1
-- though the
Sony Blu-ray BDP-S1 player
is also expected to show up at your local Fry's, eventually.
Pioneer announced the device
several months ago
at the Consumer Electronics Expo 2006 in Las Vegas. Recordable media was
announced a few weeks ago
, with single layer 25GB once-recordable discs checking in at $48, and re-recordable discs coming in at $60.

I just read this at IGN.
The current shipped/sold, HD-DVD player numbers.
they say about 7500
Lets say it goes up 10 fold by the time the ps3 ships
thats 75,000 (which is a huge gain).
Overnight the ps3 is to ship/sell 2,000,000 units.
and double that by the end of the year.
lets say that even by the end of the year it is only 2,000,00 total ps3's.
then lets double the number of hd players ago,
so you get 150,000 hd-dvd players.
by the end of the year you have about 13x time amount of blu-ray players then you have hd players.
heres the kicker, I have no doubts the 1st 6 million or so ps3's will fly off the self. the early adapters between the ps3, x360 is about the same.
but just comparing those numbers. If I was a studio and could only ship one hi-def disk, which one would it be?

Lets say "powerful aliens" come down on earth and order us not to use BluRay or we will be exterminated. Than for the future people have only the choice of HD-DVD. And FYI current XBox360 don't have HD-DVD players.
Sorry but yours was the most brain-damaged post I've read in 2006. I cannot even force myself to be polite... for the first time in 2006!
