Just a few short years ago the Blu-ray medium was largely still in its infancy. However, now that a whole slew of different movie companies have signed on board DVD is quickly becoming old news and Blu-ray is becoming the next big thing. Luckily, to get down on the Blu-ray craze all you’ll need is a Blu-ray player which comes pretty cheap in this day and age.
If you want to actually make Blu-ray discs, however, you’re going to need a burner. For those of you that fall into this category you will be happy to hear that LaCie is now shipping their USB 2.0 enabled slim Blu-ray burner for just $265. This is perfect for consumers looking to give their laptops some Blu-ray burner power but dont’ want to actually purchase a new machine.
Technical specs on this burner include the ability to write BD-R discs at 6x, BD-RE and 2x and DVD-R at 8x.
