    Pioneer announced a new internal SATA Blu-ray disc burner drive in Japan, that's capable of burning Blu-ray XL (BDXL) discs at speeds of 6X. Carrying the model number BDR-207JBK, the drive can burn double-layer BD-R discs at 12X, and quad-layer BDXL discs at 6X. The drive features a few of Pioneer's proprietary technologies, PureRead2 and Peak Power Reducer. Slated for market availability in January, the Pioneer BDR-207JBK internal SATA Blu-ray disc burner is priced at 18,000 JPY (about US $231).

    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
