Plextor Blu-ray PX-B900A burner to cost $1000

Cyrus Farivar

As we promised last month, we've finally got the price deets and specs on the new Plextor Blu-ray PX-B900A burner. A wad of 10 Benjamins (or 100 Hamiltons, take your pick) will get you this spankin' new drive -- compatible with 25 GB and 50 GB Blu-ray discs and it'll burn BD-R/RE media at 9 MBps, or 2X. For DVDs, it does an 8X burn for DVD-Rs, 4X DVD±R on dual-layer (DL) media, and 5X on DVD-RAM. You've also got support in there for 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, 6X max DVD-ROM, 24X CD-R, 16X CD-RW, and 32X CD-ROM. Also, it comes with a package of software: Ulead's Video Studio 10 and Intervideo's WinDVD BD, a Blu-ray media application. Jeez, that's a mouthful. We still think that Blu-ray and HD DVD need to duke it out in a round or two of Street Fighter to settle this debacle.
