    Lite-On To Drop Blu-Ray Recorder's Price By 15%

    Lite-On a leading manufacturer of optical drives is about to drop the price of the LH-2B1S by 15% in a attempt to improve sales along with support of BlueRay in Europe. In Europe the LH-2B1S retails for €649 ($895/£437), Lite-On said. But it expects that to fall €100 to €539 ($757/£370), "in the near future". The increasing supply of blue-laser diodes used in Blu-ray Disc read/write heads which have been rather rare over the last 12 months is the main reason for this price drop. Lite-On released the LH-2B1S in June 2006 and it can write BD-R and BD-RE media at 2x along with CD and DVD optical media.

    Shouldn't it say, "The increasing supply..." rather than, "The increasingly supply..."? I don't know, maybe I'm wrong.

    Wow, a non-standalone Blu-Ray drive can be yours for only $757 plus tax!

    Both of these formats can exist, and they can help drive the prices down of the other burners/players. One thing I noticed, my PS3 seems to cause DVD rot on home made DVDs I play in there. However, this is on the surface and can be felt when touching it. Seems like maybe the laser is a bit strong for either conventional DVDs or perhaps certain ones.
