Buffalo 8x Blu-ray drives

Buffalo Technology on Monday introduced two of the fastest Blu-ray drives for PCs on the market, with the MediaStation 8x External Blu-ray Drive and MediaStation 8x Internal Blu-ray writers and recorders. The external drive connects to PCs via a USB 2.0 port or eSATA interface, while the internal device has a SATA connection. No drivers are required to use the drives, both of which can read from and write to CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs, making them ideal for backing up user systems.

Either ships with CyberLink software for Windows PCs that will up-convert DVDs to near-HD quality. Other software includes PowerDVD for watching video, PowerDirector for video editing, Power2Go for creating DVDs and PowerProducer that allows capturing HD video and authoring and burning DVD and Blu-ray discs. The PowerBackup program lets users archive files. InstaBurn and Medi@Show software allows users to create presentations.

Both drives will be available for purchase before the end of September, with the external drive priced at about $400 and the internal drive at $350.
