With Blu-ray Disc now the clear victor in the high-definition format war, those cautious about buying hardware can spend with ease. Those with home theater PCs or laptops will be pleased to learn that Philips & Lite-On Digital Solutions (PLDS) will be soon releasing its first USB external BD-ROM drive in Q2 2008.

The upcoming model, designated the Lite-On DX-4O1S can read Blu-ray Disc media at 4X, single-layer DVD at 12X, dual-layer DVD at 8X, and CD media at 32X maximum.

1. Lite-on is a peace of crap company

2.It's External

3.The only way for it to be even half way worth it is if it is either Esata or Firewire 800 because the huge bottleneck that the USB buss causes will be tremendous. it takes forever to burn a 25gb blu-ray disc as it is how much longer do you guys want it to take?

The only good companys who make blu drives are LG and Pioneer I've already had 2 Lite-on Drives break on me that is why i always have Pioneer drives, I absolutely swear by them

Lite on makes good stuff, at cheap prices, and it seems Phillip has bought them.

Ya I have always had a good experience with Lite-On products, and they are one of the few companies that make short optical drives for SFF cases (that I know of anyways).
