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

If it wasn't for my old CD/DVD games and laziness to make iso's out of them I would just remove my optical drive altogether.

I have no need for a blu-ray drive in my PC. I have three separate devices that play 3D Blu Rays and no desire to make back ups of anything Blu Ray currently.

Either is pretty awful tbh, you see every little imperfection.

I doubt it, not unless the price of BD burners becomes equal to DVD drives before they ODDs stop being 'normal' all together.

Another issue may be playback software since Windows doesn't support BDs not even a paid addon and Cyberlink at least can be dodgy with support who usually get bundled with things (personal experience).

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


Which is a shame because digital movies and TV shows still can't match the audio quality of a BD.


What lol? You can watch youtube videos in 4k.


It depends on the source, I've seen some streamed "HD" video which looks worse than some BDs I've seen.


Of course, but you can get some Streams that aren't even compressed and if that person is running the game at say 1440p it'll look exactly like it does on their screen.

The 4k Youtube videos look much better than Blu-ray videos.

Good thing I said audio quality and not video quality then, right?

There isn't a single streaming or digital download platform that I know of (outside of illegal torrents and such) that streams/offers digital downloads that have sound quality up to par with Dolby TrueHD or DTS Master Audio.

I put one in mine so I can rip blue rays and put them on my media server.

I stupidly put a blu-ray burner in my old PC back in 2010. I never used the damn thing, since the software available to play blu-rays are all low grade, paid-for garbage. I supposed you could use it to burn data backups, but that's kind of a pain in the ass.

Burners? No. You may still need a BD-ROM if you plan to watch movies on your PC, or if you still plan to be buying physical PC game releases when they eventually switch over to BDs. But burners are obsolete at this point; flash memory is too cheap, widely compatible, and widely available to justify burning things onto expensive discs anymore.
