If you do not care about making Bluray disks the LG combo drive is not much more money then a Bluray only drive. The Bluray only Pioneer BDC-202BKS is slightly less there are probably others I almost bought one but found the LG instock so I grab it. I feel it is really nice to go to a store and not worry about what format to buy for instance, Shriek 3 is only avaiable on HD-DVD and there are many others, if a movie is available on both I opt for the Bluray just because I feel HD-DVD will not be around that much longer. Newer drives will probably support HD-DVD but it may be just a footnote in the specs.

If HD-DVD does fail it was because of greed, the crazy expensive SD/HD combo packs are silly and I see no need for them and will not buy them.

I have and would buy the LG drive again, as Mike said it is great to buy or rent a movie and not worry what format is in stock.

Thanks for the info. I just got my Ati 3870 and have a C2D so it does sound like great advice.

Thanks Greg
