Sony Unveils Blu-Ray Disc Writer Drive

Sony has just announced their 2nd generation Blu-ray Disc internal writer drive. The Sony BWU-200S has 4x BD-R and 16x DVD+/-R recording speeds.

The BWU-200S internal Blu-ray disc writer drive has a serial ATA (SATA) interface and 5.25 inch form factor. Other supported recording formats include standard single layer 4.7GB DVD+R/+RW/RAM discs, 8.5GB DVD+R double/dual layer discs, and CDs. The BWU-200S is a step up from the previous first generation model as it cuts DVD burning speeds to 45 minutes. The Sony BWU-200S will be available next month at Sonystyle stores for $600.

I really think that Blu-ray will win the format wars, I mean think about it, would you rather say, I'll just burn these on my...BD Writer or HD-DVD writer? BD writer just takes less saliva.
