I foresee slow adoption rates, BR was slow enough as it is. Unless the price is right, which BR still isn't there, and the size of 1 tb hard drive is ~$100. Not for me.

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.

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?

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.

Cheers!

I planned on getting a Blu-Ray drive in my HTPC. This doesn't sway me from doing so. I can't see these cracking the market anytime soon. Someday, maybe.

BR recordable discs are pointless. Increasing the size a manufactured BR disc can hold is fine but releasing a recordable disc in this size at those prices is a waste of time and resources.

Playstation4 will highly likely use holographic discs 500GB or 1TB in size and maybe more.

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.

PS4 won't be out for many years since the PS3 is still upgradeable. Sony has already made this comment.

Not even dual layer dvdr's are at a cost effective rate yet...they're still pretty much $1+ a disc whilst single layers are like what, 10cents a disk.

Good luck seeing these or even regular bdlr's at an attractive consumer price point.

I wonder how much it actually costs to make one of these, and how much of the price is attributable to recouping R&D, and then how much is profit margin on top of that.

1.5TB in tape backup? I thought tapes were really expensive. So $100 for 1.5TB or did I misunderstand that?

2x write speed when CD-Rs came out took like 2 hours for what... 700MB? At 2x and 4x write speeds, how long would it take to write 100GB of data onto this disc?
