The BDC-S02 is a Blu-Ray drive for your PC made my Pioneer that cost at least half if not more of current Blu-Ray players
The BDC-S02 will go for an estimated retail price of $300. The BDC-S02 can play standard Blu-Ray movies as well as play back and record BD-R and BD-RE discs (both single and dual layer).

The price is significantly lower than most stand-alone Blu-ray players, as well as the price of other PC-only drives up until now.

Hopefully this is just the beginning of the initial price drop of HD hardware, as when DVD first came out this was the same scenario.
