Low-cost Blu-ray drive announced

Philips and Lite-On Digital Solutions has just announced a new Blu-ray Disc drive for PCs at the low-price of $199. This is now the most affordable BD-ROM drive available. Frankly, it’s the cheapest Blu-ray player period.

The DH-401S plays all single and double layer Blu-ray Disc, DVD and CD (no HD DVD, obviously). BD-R/RE/ROM discs can be read at up to 4x. DVD±R and DVD-ROM discs at 12x, and DVD±RW at up to 8x speeds. CD-R/RW/ROM can be read at up to 32x.

The drive ships with Cyberlink PowerDVD and you can output a 1080p signal from your PC to your TV with an HDMI w/HDCP equipped video card.

    Some people have suggested that the MSRP will be even lower for the USA. So we might see it even cheaper here in the states!
