    500 bucks gets you a bd write/rewriter with the ability to read and play HD-DVDs. That is a sweet deal right there.

    "GGC-H20LI ($400) which can read HD and BR discs but only write DVD±RW and CD-R/RW."

    That one will be nice, when the price drops to 100$ levels =) Doubt though that there will be any HD or BR games in the near or distant future and DVDs are enough quality for me still :)

    If you pay $1200 for an optical drive you should just kill yourself...
