Will putting a BD burner's in new build's become the standard you think ?

#1Kano92Posted 7/27/2014 5:19:19 AM
or will it not become a trend when building new rigs ? I guess what I'm saying dvd burners is pretty much the standard. Do you think BD burners will take it's place ? Will it maybe be the standard once they are the same price as dvd burners. Are you guys putting them in or would put them in if they were a little cheaper ?

We're moving away from optical drives all together, bd burners will never become the standard.

I really can't think of a point to owning one. For less than what they cost plus the software to watch movies on a PC you can buy a standalone player. Maybe it would be useful for external backup but 1 tb HDDs are $55, or 2TB for $80, plus a USB adapter for $20 for a tip-top of the line one, 25 25 GB discs is $45 which is 625gb of storage that you can only write to once and you'll need an $80 burner to use them.

not until the burners become as flexible as regular dvd burners(maybe they already are, dunno since i don't have one) and the discs become as cheap as dvds.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Got a nice LG one 2 years ago for 50 bucks, used it like 5 times. No, it won't become the standard. Some case manufactures are decreasing the amount of expansion bays in the front of the case, some don't even have any anymore.

Outside of an HTPC, probably never. The reason CD and DVD drives became ubiquitous was because that was how software and media was delivered. Now, you can get almost everything online, and we're moving further in that direction.

Nope. With flash memory and high speed Internet connections, no one really cares about optical media anymore.
