Slowly but surely, these internal Blu-ray drive
prices are sinking down to levels we'd consider to be "halfway reasonable." For instance, have a look at Pioneer
's latest, the BDR-2203. An 8x BD writer that's totally capable of toasting DVDs and CDs when the BD-R spindle runs dry and very eager to play back Blu-ray Discs on your newfangled HTPC. It's all set to ship this month for a very manageable $249.99, and don't be shocked to see it moving for even less on the streets. Just be careful out there, cool?
