Hitachi and LG have teamed up to produce an optical PC drive that reads both Blu-ray and HD DVD discs, making it the first in the world to do so. In addition to supporting both new formats, the GGW-H10N can also read and write regular CDs, single layer DVDs and Blu-ray discs. Unfortunately, the GGW-H10N will be sold for approximately $1,200 to OEMs, making the final price tag much higher by the time it reaches the end user. At least home theater PCs can now have a hybrid drive to further lessen any spats that could result from a pseudo “format war”. The ball is in your court, consumers!
