    Plextor has introduced two new combo HD-DVD/Blu-Ray DVD ReWriter drives, the PX-B920SA and PX-B300SA. The Plextor PX-B300SA is a dual-layer internal DVD drive for PCs which can read BD-ROM media at up to 6x and HD DVD-ROM at 3x. The drive can also write DVD+R / DVD-R at 16x, DVD+R DL / DVD-R DL at 4x, DVD+RW at 8x, DVD-RW at 6x, DVD-RAM at 5x, CD-R at 40x and CD-RW at 24x. In addition, Plextor has included LightScribe technology to both devices, enabling custom text and designs to be printed/burned onto discs. The PX-B920SA shares the same above specs, but is also a highly versatile Blu-Ray writer, writing BD-R (SL/DL) at 4x, BD-R (SL LTH) at 2x and BD-RE (SL/DL) media at 2x. Both drives utilize SATA connection, and 4MB of data buffer. They are also covered by Plextor’s Fast Warranty Service (2-year warranty in the EU, Norway and Switzerland (Collect & Return); other countries 1-year carry-in). Expect the PX-B920SA and PX-B300SA to be widely available at the end of this month.

    Uhm, its not a hard drive, unless I misreading your response. I suspect these wont cost as much as previous generation of readers and writers, with the lower cost of manufacturing and component pieces. Also, Plextor still is high quality, why would you suggest otherwise?

    I think what he was trying to refer to was the SATA "hard drive" connector and why not add connectors for TV like S-Video, HDMI, etc.

    hacker111 must not know much about how computer internal components work. These are not stand alone units. They require the computers connections, power, and software to use. Or perhaps sarcasm that eluded me?
