CES 2008: Buffalo announce HD-DVD & Blu-Ray USB combo drive

Chris Davies - Jan 7, 2008

Back in August we showed you the dual Blu-Ray and HD-DVD USB drive Buffalo were planning on launching in Japan, and lamented its absence elsewhere in the world; well, at CES 2008 they’re announcing US availability, meaning that the format-indecisive can take their pick from both new standards, as well as the old favourites CD and DVD.


The one black mark against the Buffalo Mediastation is the fact that while it can write to Blu-Ray, DVD and CD, it can only read HD-DVDs.  However, with the state of play in the high-definition media market at the moment, you might thing that’s not too insurmountable an omission.

Price and availability date is yet to be announced.
