    Panasonic shared its plans to release an internal Blu-Ray writer. The new disc burner nicknamed LF-PB271JD will be able to burn 50GB on a dual-layer Blu-Ray disc, thanks to a SATA interface and an 8MB buffer. Panasonic's writer will come bundled with CyberLink's BD Solution 1.0 and will be able to write BD-R at 4x, BD-RE at 2x, DVD-RAM at 5x, DVD-R/+R at 16x, DVD-R/+R DL at 8x, DVD-RW/+RW at 6x, CD-R at 40x and CD-RW at 24x. The Panasonic LF-PB271JD will be released on November 10th and will cost a little over $460.

    They could have made it a little prettier.

    For $460 Id at least expect a good looking metal face with some original design rather than just using the same old tired plastic theyve been using since the invention of the CD-ROM drive.

    Its just them trying to make a profit wherever they can to make up for the massive costs of diving into the Blu-ray market while still trying to make it a more mainstream price.

    Tis is useless to me though since I only support HD-DVD

    Looks dont matter to me, as long as they offer it in black . Actually, thats a nice price since the first BD writers came out. And I dont have a problem being locked into a format that has about 2xs the storage as hd dvd. I have a BD player with my PS3 and this is excellent for it. However, the media is still ludicrously high...
