I guess PS4 will have the compatability to read these. Looks like im SOL. Unless they start upping the resolution of movies beyond 1080p these will be addopted very slowly. Or if they want to make multi movie dics.
Just get HDD bays with e-SATA/USB3 and a good place to store multiple HDDs for swapping them around... More space, better transfer rates and lower price. Hell, even the HDD bays are like 20 bucks, even the good stuff!
On the 2000 was a good thing to have 4GB on a Disc because of overall prices on HDDs, but today this is just dumb. Stop R&D on discs and focus on something else... Like MLC/SLC chips.
The future is behind SSD, why would anyone care about BDXL, when it will take at least several years to become wide spread, by that time SSDs will become larger and cheaper. Plus with remote storage becoming cheaper and faster the physical media that you can carry with you become less and less important.
[citation][nom]sliem[/nom]Lol insane. I just bought 1.5TB HDD for $87.1.5TB HDD for $87 or 200GB for $100? You pick.Oh and there is a $100 2TB HDD now from WD.So 2TB or 200GB?[/citation]
What's more portable?
[citation][nom]gglawits[/nom]A 100GB BDXL-R disk for $50? You gotta be kidding me.For $50, you can buy a 320GB 2.5" harddisk and have spare change left.Or, for the sake of comparison: In my small business, I'm now backing up onto LTO-5 tapes - 1.5TB for $100, each tape.[/citation]
1.5TB in tape backup? I thought tapes were really expensive. So $100 for 1.5TB or did I misunderstand that?
