Blu-ray / DVD Drives
Blu-ray is the current standard for high-end movie playback, so you’ll need a drive if you want to use these high-capacity discs. Single-layer and dual-layer discs with capacities of 25GB and 50GB are available, and drives come in several types: larger desktop drives, laptop drives, and super-slim slot-loading types. Blu-ray drives are backwards compatible with DVD discs too, so you only need one drive in your PC or laptop.
These drives are for use in desktop PCs, and they can both read Blu-ray discs, while some can also write to Blu-ray discs. Please check the specifications for this information. They're easy to fit: they slide into metal bays inside a tower case and are held in place with screws, and are attached to the motherboard with a SATA connection. Make sure you've got a spare connector on your power supply, too. Writable Blu-ray discs can store either 25 or 50GB, depending if they are single or double sided.
