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.

"Have people gotten so dumb" was not referred to anyone in particular. It was about the consumers, it was about me too. I don't find it the least bit offensive and would be greatly disillusioned if someone did. We are still anonymous people on a web forum, not diplomats.
As to the flaming above, I am 100% convinced now I should not have posted it. Not only was it harsh, also what the post stated was obvious on itself. Shame on me at least twice.
What is the members' scoring for?
Me buy a PS3? I'm a mobile freak. If they made a mobile version with the LCD than maybe. BTW, no, I don't waste my time with the PSP as they show in the advertisments.
