Wow, that's impressive. I wish there were more output options other than strictly USB, but still impressive. Hopefully it won't cost an arm and a leg.

I wonder if the price will reasonable for an external Blu-Ray burner since it doesn't have many I/O interfaces. Of course, make it look cool and you always have an excuse to raise the price.

[citation][nom]spanky deluxe[/nom]Since when have external optical drives using 5 odd year old technology been newsworthy? Is it because it has a blue neon cross on the side?http://www.ubergizmo.com/15/archiv [...] urner.htmlIts nothing but an external USB powered slimline bluray burner.[/citation]
That is what I was thinking. You guys should see my external usb powered data storage device. I mean my cheap external usb powered 2.5 inch drive :p

Unless this thing can work without a computer, its nothing special.

Reading the article, it's not even a Blu-ray burner... it burns DVD and CD, and reads Blu-ray.

People are confused, because it says bluray PLAYER in the article. This is a bluray DRIVE. It's not a standalone player, it has no built in decoders, and it doesnt deliver video signals via USB. It connects to PC via USB as an optical device. Sections of this article are very misleading.
