    The BRXL-16FBS-BK and BRXL-16U3 cost $255 and $322, respectively, and come with a software bundle which includes PowerDVD10 BD edition, PowerDirector 8 HE, PowerProducer 5, Power2Go 7, PowerBackup 2, InstantBurn 5 and MediaShow 5.

    Before overhead that is what, 72MB/s? That's not too shabby for optical media.

    They had an internal ASUS Blu-Ray drive on sale the other day for $40 after $20 rebate. Add a cheap external enclosure and you're there.

    BDXL is still a joke though.
