Default Pioneer Blu-ray drive BDC-S02 for $299

Not too shabby. $299 MSRP for a Blu-ray PC drive, quite a bit cheaper than whats out there now.

Pioneer on April 17 debuted its BDC-S02 Blu-ray Disc (BD) Combo drive model in Beijing, for immediate launch in China and later in other markets around the world at a recommended retail price of US$299, according to Pioneer's Taiwan subsidiary Pioneer High Fidelity Taiwan.

The BDC-S02 can playback high-definition movies on BD-ROM, BD-R (recordable), BD-R DL (single-sided double-layer), BD-RE (rewritable) and BD-RE DL discs as well as common DVD and CD discs, according to Pioneer's Optical Disc Drive Sales general manager Shannon Yu for the Asia-Pacific region.

From 2006-2008, mainstream users of BD and HD DVD drives will be IT professionals, which will switch to DIY (do it yourself) users during 2008-2010 and then general home/office users after 2010, Yu pointed out.
