Buffalo Blu-Ray drives

Japanese outfit Buffalo has begun selling two new Blu-Ray drives, which are remarkable in several respects. The BRC-5125U2, for instance, is actually an external USB 2.0 drive, something virtually unseen in the realm of HD computer hardware. Both the U2 and the internal FBS-BK can also read single-layer BD discs at speeds of up to 5x, though this figure drops to 2x with double-layer discs. Meanwhile, the full plethora of CD and DVD discs (with the exception of DVD-ROM) can be burned at speeds ranging from 4x to 32x. The FBS-BK is 53,000 yen ($436), while the U2 is 63,700 yen ($524).
