So what’s the fuss about this new Blu-ray format? First, capacity has been increased from the present 8.5GB limit on dual layer DVDs to a whopping 25GB for a single layer Blu-ray. Dual layer Blu-ray discs are double that capacity at 50GB. After numerous delays that prompted speculations about its chances of winning the format war against the rival HD DVD standard, Blu-ray drives are starting to appear in the market. We finally managed to get one from LG that is capable of a record 4x Blu-ray write speed.
If you really need the storage capacity of Blu-ray now and can afford its expected exorbitant price tag, then the LG GBW-H10N is probably one of the few and better options available now.
