So Toshiba has announced their HDDVD burner for PC's now... and assuming it doesn't get pushed back again, it should be released around late february. Then you'll be able to burn HDDVD-Rs at break neck 1x speeds, along with HDDVD-RDL's at 1x (which don't exist in recordable form yet...). Playback is also clocking in at a super fast 1x for HDDVD.
For some reason, Toshiba hasn't even given us a price for it... my guess would be because they don't KNOW yet (I haven't even heard that this drive is in mass production yet!).
Oh yeah, and if you thought you might want to try burning an HDDVD-RW first, to make sure you knew what you were doing before wasting an expensive HDDVD-R disc? Think again! They *STILL* haven't finalized the HDDVD-RW format, so therefore, there is no media and no support for it on the Toshiba drive.
Great format guys, and great job Toshiba. You just keep that anti-Sony propaganda up, since it's about the only thing you can do right!

Agreed, most of the Toshiba DVD burners sucked royal @$$.
And yeah... I remember Toshiba showing me some crappy HD DVD-R recordable PC drives last year at CES that were supposed to be released LAST YEAR. They are seriously lagging here...
