I haven't burned any CD or DVD for ages. What's the point of owning such device other than making copies of PS3 games and BluRay movies?

Well, optical importance has certainly diminished for me, but I do need at least one drive in the house :D

That's the point; you bet many people are getting this as it reduces the time to burn a BR disc. But they're still expensive.

I do VHS(or any tape) to DVD conversions and I burn discs everyday. I own 6 burners, one is a bluray burner

I also do backups in bluray and I have an HD camera so I could put my holidays on bluray without loosing resolution... but mkv is more popular anyway. Well you could still burn several mkv in a bluray disc and still be playable, it depends on the player
