The LG BH08LS20 has finally made its way to the US. Best Buy has it for a mere $249.99

I bought two of these (one for each box). I haven't used them to burn any Blu-ray discs yet but they're faster than my DVD burners were at reading discs.

Yeah, this drive smokes. One of the best things about it is that it will write to pretty much any BD-R media at 8x. Here's a Ritek disc

Cool. Now I have more of a reason to buy some BD media sooner rather than later.
