Sony BWU-100A Blu-ray Burner to Ship in August

Well it's nice to see the force behind Blu-ray finally putting out a Blu-ray drive. Sony has announced that its BWU-100A Blu-ray Burner will begin shipping next month. The drive will cost you $750 USD, which is the lowest price we've seen on a Blu-ray drive yet, and will be able to burn both 25GB and 50GB BD-R/RE discs at 2x, meaning it'll take around 30 minutes to burn a 25GB disc and 60 to burn a 50GB disc. Sony claims that their drive will also be able to burn most DVD±R/RW formats as well as CD-R/RW.
