LG has a $400 drive coming out that reads both formats or the 360 drive for $200 + a free movie for just HD DVD.

I would expect a drive that's released at $400 to come down in price considerably in the next several months. I've got my eyes on this one.

I keep reading this on forums but can't find the details. When is the release? Is it confirmed by LG or just a rumor?

Edit: Haha found the engadget article. Can't link, but see another thread in this subforum.

ASUS HD-DVD Rom - HR-0205T can read at 2.4x speed from HD DVD-ROMs
ASUS HD-DVD Rom $180

ASUS BD-ROM - BC-1205PT boasts a high reading speed of 5x from BD-ROM
ASUS BD-ROM $270

This is good if you want one or the other, but as others have said LG has a $400 player that can read both and a $500 player that reads both and writes Blu-ray.

I search Google for "GGC-H20LI" every couple of days obsessively. I'm so anxious for those drives to show up!! It's driving me nuts!
