The new Lite-On DH-4O1S is the perfect all-in-one disc reading device for most popular media formats including Blu-ray Disc, DVD and CD discs. It reads BD-R/RE/ROM, Single-layer or Double-layer media at 4X maximum. Single Layer DVD ±R or DVD-ROM can be read at 12X max, while Double Layer DVD±R and Single Layer DVD±RW can be read at 8X max. CD-R/RW/ROM has a maximum read speed of 32X. The DH-4O1S BD-ROM retail pack comes with an extra silver bezel to match some computers, and a SATA cable for easy connection. Also included in the package is the latest Cyberlink Power DVD software for playback of Blu-ray disc media, DVD, or CD multi-media content.

I'll be interested when burners reach this price point.

I'll be interested when they have all-in-one burners (Blu-ray, HDDVD and so on) in the sub $100-range. :)

It's good though to see that everything develops nicely.

Oh hell yeah! I don't even have to have the burning right now, just a $199 BD/HD-DVD combo drive will do. :D

I almost thought this post was about a BD Burner. Found out it wasnt and DAMN my hopes got up for nothing.
