OWC Ships Blu-ray Drives
It seems that the Blu-ray discs will conquer us and that will happened sooner that we may predict. Already there are company shipping this format of discs, and here is one more.
Other World Computing (OWC) announced the availability of internal and external Blu-ray disc drives for Macs and Windows PCs. The systems start at $559.99 for internal drives and US$649.99 for external drives.
Blu-ray is a new high-capacity optical disc format that can store up to 50GB per disc. Blu-ray drives are backwards-compatible with DVD, DVD-RAM and CD formats.
Macs don't support Blu-ray discs out of the box, so OWC also offers the full version of Roxio's Toast 8 Titanium software with the drives. It's bundled in some configurations. Toast 8 Titanium adds Blu-ray disc recording capabilities, including the ability to burn Blu-ray discs from the Finder.
The internal drive configuration is a standard IDE/ATAPI drive. The external model features two FireWire 400 ports and a USB 2.0 port, and comes with cables. Two 25GB (single-layer) Blu-ray media discs are included.
