Blu-ray just keeps getting cheaper
It’s official, we’re not buying that “Blu-ray is too expensive” excuse anymore. Sure, expensive Blu-ray players exist; they’re for people that know why they’re expensive and are willing to pay the premium. For the rest of consumer America, there’s the Lite-on internal Blu-ray drive.
It’s not the fanciest thing in the world, and a lot of the video quality will be dependent on your computer. The drive doesn’t automatically make everything high def, you need to have a rig that can handle the appropriate resolution, but it’s not a bad option.
The drive has an 8x read speed, a 250ms access time, and comes with Power DVD 8, and is available on electronics websites everywhere.
