Default Are there any BD-ROM drives?

Does anybody know if there are any BD-ROM (read only) drives out there? I keep finding BD burners, which seems to me to be the much more expensive option. In theory a read-only drive should be much more affordable.

ASUS HD-DVD Rom - HR-0205T can read at 2.4x speed from HD DVD-ROMs

ASUS BD-ROM - BC-1205PT boasts a high reading speed of 5x from BD-ROM

Both drives are read only ( not burners )

Sweet! That's just in my price range too! I'd love to get one. Any idea when they'll be available for purchase?

Are there any BD-ROM drives that are available today?
