LG GGW-H20L HD combo drive

The Register has reviewed the $250 LG GGW-H20L HD combo drive, they seem to feel a drive that supports HD-DVD is still needed but we disagree.

Here’s what they thought:

“Blu-ray writing has a certain appeal but ultimately it’s a bit pointless. Most people can’t read a Blu-ray video disc, especially on their PC, and the format doesn’t have enough capacity and write-speed – an a low enough cost – to put DVD-R in the shade.

For movie playback, a combo drive with both Blu-ray and HD DVD in a high-end media centre is a winner, but the GGW-H20L falls betwixt and between, as you pay £50 for a feature that may only get occasional use.”
