Format War ’06: Phillips Blu-Ray writer, Pioneer delays player
By Dan Moren
Have a need to not only burn CDs and DVDs but also that pretender to the next-gen optical crown, Blu-Ray? Philips has got you covered with
their new TripleWriter, which can burn BD-ROM, BD-R, and BD-RE media at a
2x. All that for the low, low—did we mention low?—price of $1045.
One assumes it can also read Blu-Ray discs, which I suppose makes it a viable choice, since standalone Blu-Ray players are going to run about $1000 anyway.
