LG cuts price of Blu-ray writer in Taiwan market LG Electronics has knocked a third off of the price of its GBW-H10N Blu-Ray Disc (BD) Super Multi DVD burner (Super Multi Blue) for the Taiwan market. The model was launched in September 2006 for a price of NT$29,900 (US$908), and has now been dropped by LG to NT$19,900 (US$605). The burner features support for 4X speed burning to single sided single layer (SSSL) Blu-ray media.
4X is currently the fastest burn speed available for BD-R media. The reason for the price drop is to both clear out inventory and gain more market share since more Blu-ray models were released in the territory this year. Sony, Pioneer, Samsung Electronics and Philips may follow suit and lower the price of their hardware in the area.

Hmmm, $605 (315) for LG's BD PC burner now, eh?

I wonder what that means for the HD-DVD drives due, IIRC, at the end of this month.

They were promised at CES to be at a price "significantly below the BD competition".
