    Go watch a 40 minute TV show or watch a 1.5 hour movie while you wait. Your disk might be done by then.
    I love all High-Def media regardless of format.

    Well the first DVD Burners took over an hour to burn 4.7gb of data, I wouldn't expect Blu-Ray to be any faster out of the gate. HD-DVD burners I would expect to be faster since they are based on the same DVD burner technology that has already been evolved several times over the years.

    Only time will tell if that assumption is true though.

    Well given the price of the drive (and discs) right now, I think I'll be sticking to my DVD writer for now. Plus, I don't have the need to burn that much data right now anyway!

    Exactly!! I'm sorry but that's way too long to wait for a blu ray or hd dvd. Even so the Blu Ray burnable disks are $25.00 a pop!! You get these to save money not to probably pay more!! I will wait as well just like I did with a dvd burner for my pc!! Look now you can get a 16x dvd-+r for like $49.99 most places on sale!! I usually go with the Pioneer.

    I would like to be able to burn Blu-rays because I would use them for backing up my files on my PC. Of course I want them at a descent speed.
