Default Cheaper and faster Blu-ray recorder: Pioneer BDC-2202

Pioneer is introducing a cheaper and faster Blu-ray recorder.

$300 and 5 times recording:

This $300 drive, available next month, can both read and write Blu-ray discs along with standard DVDs and CDs. The BDC-2202 records BD-R discs ó standard writable discs ó at 5X (five times the speed of the first Blu-ray recorders) and writes double-layer Blu-ray discs at 2X. The drive also includes software that can record video from camcorders directly to DVD or Blu-ray discs.

The discs created by the drive will play back on Sonyís PlayStation 3 and other Blu-ray drives.

Considering that most Blu-ray recorders cost upward of $1,000 (the first recorder, by Sony, cost almost $4,000), this PC-compatible drive is a considerable step forward for the format. Now all you need are some high-definition video files to record to that fancy new drive. Itís no fun to own a hot rod and have nowhere to drive it. JOHN BIGGS
