Get an LG Blu-Ray burner for only $49.99 from NewEgg Canada!
How insane is this? There were tons of people who laid out hundreds of dollars for a PS3 because it was the cheapest BluRay player available. Hundreds of dollars just for a player. Now, we get a BluRay burner for only $49.99. Why so cheap? Well, there is a new version of this BluRay burner, so this model has been discontinued. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad item, it just means that they need to get them out of their warehouse to make room for the newer model.
This model features:
- Max 14x BD-R writing speed
- Supports BDXL (128GB) discs
- SATA interface
- 3D Blu-ray title playback & M-disc support
The only thing I can see that the newer version has is 16x BD-R write vs the 14x of this model. The new one costs almost $120. For a $70 savings, I’d take a slightly slower burn speed. Now, maybe there is something else that the new one has, but nothing that I can see. Regardless, it would take a whole bunch to get me to pay $70 more.
Shipping is $9.99 which is unfortunate, but considering you’re saving $50 (or $70, depending) on this, it isn’t too bad!
And just on a side note, the best place to get blank media in Canada is, fittingly enough, BlankMedia.ca. Check them out. They are awesome and their Taiyo Yuden branded media has a fantastic cost/quality number.
