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