Any comments on my idea? Should I go through with it?
The info should be still be useful cos I think DVD media will be in relative popular use for quite a few more years since we are still waiting for the blue laser format dust to settle. Besides, DVD media prices have now achieved the best bang per buck ($/MB) when compared to almost all other optical media.
ATM, I can only foresee most getting the new gen blue laser burners only when they (burner, media, movie titles) become more widespread with cheap standalone players just like with DVD presently. Hey, I am still contented with my dirt cheap US$40 Cyberhome DVD/divx player despite using it on my 32" LCD HDTV - unbelievable value for the dollar. A HD player now would be nice but then again, I think I may still be able to count the total no. of movie HD titles on my fingers and toes... anyway, I had quite enough of being at the bleeding edge, I paid over US$1K for the reference Sony S7000 back then. lol
