Cool Blu-Ray DVD 27/50GB Storage standard

Some of you folks may have heard of the Blu-Ray DVD standard. Well according to CNet News, both Hewlett Packard and DELL are now backing the standard!

Quote:
Last week, HP and Dell said they are supporting the "Blu-ray Disc" format, which uses blue laser light to squeeze more than four hours of high definition video onto a single-sided disc.

"HP believes Blu-ray Disc is the most consumer-friendly technology choice for the next generation of removable storage," John Romano, HP senior vice president, said in a statement.

Blue-laser drives are considered a successor to today's red-laser DVD drives. Blu-ray Disc technology allows for up to 27GB of storage on a single-sided disc, compared with 4.7GB for current DVDs.

Additionally, Blu-ray Disc backers are working on a dual-layer disc that can hold about 50GB of data.

Wow, that amazing...one could store an entire series on a single disc, and still have room to spare!

I like the idea. ^_^

Yup you could backup an entire hard drive on 1-3 dual layer discs - even if each disc cost AUD$10-25 still good alternative for backups
