    I am more interested in HVD than either Blu Ray or HD DVD. HVD will probably stay as computer media for a long time before films would be considered.

    The first 1x speed DVD writers that were on the high street were around £800 from what I remember. My first DVD writer was still £200.

    I would thought it be better to have holographic solid state storage (like they had in the original series of Star Trek). They would use a cube shaped block and read from it.

    "Pioneer is an original founder member of the DVD forum and this drive is based upon the "minus" DVD recordable standard. Pioneer was the first company to release a DVD recorder for the home consumer market (Pioneer's first DVD writer back in 1997 cost over £17,000) - this drive promises greater performance for far less"


    even they can't get it right, ever hear of cd(minus)r's?

    durn + format has everyone confused
