BenQ's BW1000 Trio recorder
Another PC Blu-ray devices gets a price tag

After months of waiting, it's finally here: the BenQ BW1000 Trio PC Blu-ray recorder. BenQ announced the player just one month ago, claiming it would become one of the more prolific recorders on the market

The single-layer recorder can record BD-R media at speeds up to 2X, but can read dual-layer Blu-ray media as well. The drive features a single-lens optical pickup with three separate lasers that will read and record Blu-Ray, DVD+/-R and CDRs.  BenQ claims the device will also write single-layer DVD+/-R media at 12X, 4X for DVD+/-R DL, 8X for DVD+/-RW, and 32X CAV for CD-R.

Like other Blu-ray PC recorders, the BW1000 has an estimated MSRP of $1,000 USD, but will not hit store shelves until August 2006.  Earlier this year Lite-On announced the company would take over the majority of BenQ manufacturing. To no surprise, the Lite-On LH-2B1S announced last month and the BW1000 are very similar.

"media" usually refers to the disks, not the drives (media players).

I agree though, until there is a hybrid player I am not going to invest. I don't care about a burner, as long term storage is better in tapes or hard drives and they cost less per GB
