    Buffalo launched the new BRXL-PC6U2-BK, a portable Blu-ray XL (BDXL) disc writer. Measuring 145x153x19 mm and weighing a little under 350 g, the drive can burn 100 GB and 128 GB BDXL-R discs at 4X speeds. It relies entirely on the host for power, and uses two USB 2.0 cables to connect to the host. The second cable is for the extra power. The drive is priced at 23,205 JPY (US $287) in Japan, where it will be initially released.

    Last time I was looking at one of these I did a google search to buy the big discs and had 0 results. I guess the media will be arriving later? Doesn't sound like a great plan to me, especially when you can buy a 2TB hard drive for $70 USD.
