Good review.The review had to note that the BR media is still very expensive and there is no point at this time to burn home made BR's. Hard disks are cheaper than ever these days.
I can't help but think that Blu-ray exhausted itself in a battle against HD-DVD, and will ultimately wonder why it fought that battle when the real war was somewhere else - online delivery and SSD / Flash memory.Hard media like this must be spending a fortune propping itself up. Money that could be better spent in delivering quality online content at a price point that discourages piracy (see the Virgin Music news from today too).I stopped using my floppy drive in my PC some 3 years ago. I only use the DVD drive in my PC to play an older game, or to burn a CD for the car, and the latter I expect to disappear when the car is replaced.
@Greg: When only 75% of the population is predicted to have a 5Mbit+ broadband speed when the 21CN network rollout is complete in 2012 online distribution isn't going to replace 50GB disks just yet. SSD/Flash may replace blu-ray, but if it does happen it'll probably be a gentle transistion.
