Did you know that a dual-layer Blu-Ray disc can hold up to 50Gb of data? I didn’t
know that until I started reading up about them on the Blu-Ray page at DVD
Recorders and Players Guide. The other thing I didn’t know about Blu-Ray was that
they are designed for recording HD programmes, so if you don’t have an HD-compatible
TV, well, you can’t use them. I wonder if that constraint will remain there, as I
can imagine there will be competing ideas there.
Anyway, I started having a look at different models that should be on the market right
about now. I particularly like the Samsung
Blu-Ray Disc Player. But I’d probably hold off from buying something like that.
It wouldn’t be cool if Blu-Ray turned out to be the new Betamax.
