Re: Hard Drive Deals

said by Guspaz:

Umm, what other reason is there to buy a bluray drive except to play commercial bluray discs?

How about data backup? Instead of backing up my digital car show photographs for 2012 (which I shoot in the RAW format) to one Bluray disc instead of 10 or 12 DVDs...

Yea, it was a strange question he asked. I'd bet more people use them for legitimate backup purposes than piracy. I've never used my blu-ray burners for piracy, they're entirely for archival.

Exactly. I would use them for off site backup at my in laws.
