Excerpt: Are you wondering whether it’s finally time to spring for a Blu-ray burner? Lite-On’s iHBS212 might provide the best argument yet for taking the plunge. That’s certainly the case if cost is a deciding factor. At $160, the iHBS212 is the least expensive Blu-ray burner we’ve tested yet. That’s $40 less than our Best of the Best pick, Plextor’s B940SA—a savings you could put toward the purchase of Blu-ray media.
Pros: Inexpensive 12x BD writes; strong DVD performance.
Excerpt: Until very recently Blu-ray writers have been expensive, costing around £200. LiteOn's latest internal model costs just £110 inc VAT though, making it cheapest Blu-ray writer yet. Despite its low price, the iHBS212 is quick at burning Blu-ray (BD) discs. Although it couldn't match its stated 12X for single layer BD discs, it did manage just under 5X on average – the quickest we've seen.
Excerpt: Özellikle PlayStation kullanıcıları ve Full HD film meraklılarının aşina olduğu Blu-Ray diskler, henüz yeterince yaygın değil. Bunun sebebi hem Blu-Ray okuyucu hem de yazıcılarının pahalı olması. Ayrıca Blu-Ray disklerin fiyatları da DVD’lere kıyasla yüksek.
