Actually, if you want Blu Ray this Pioneer Blu Ray drive is only $170 @ Newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827129015

It burns everything else except BD. Slowly getting there... now if it also was a BD burner and a little cheaper I'd be interested.

>$200 to watch high-definition video on your PC sounds like a good price to me.

I wonder how good video would look coming through DVI, or even HDMI on that thing, compared to a PS3 with HDMI.

We just need the media itself to follow suit. At $10 a pop, it's still kind of expensive, for 25GB at least. You could use that $10 to pick up a 25 pack of blank DVDs and have 5x the storage capacity. Sure, it's more than one disc, but meh.
