2nd Generation Hybrid from LG Announced
This Engadget post (from 7/19, I know... old news, but I was on a short little vacation in northern Wisconsin and missed it) reports on another announcement from LG about their 2nd generation hybrid drives. The $500 GGW-H20LI reads both HD disc formats, and writes at 6x dual-layer BD-R/RE discs (as well as DVD±RW). There's also a cheaper drive that only reads the HD formats, but will write DVD±RW and CD-R/RW. Since the 1st gen drive was priced around $1K and now the 2nd gen is $500, I wonder how long it will take before these are offered for under $100. Maybe a year??
