    100 GB blank blu-ray discs are $55 here. so I can only imagine how much a 300 Gb will cost. But this is good news, more storage is better.

    srsly they are mad. The production yield of Tripel Layer BD's isn't rly amazing and now this, just loool
    The industry should just drop the mpeg2 code for movies, i've seen quite some BD movies that are still using mpeg2 -> waste of spaces

    Agreed, especially considering it's not difficult to get a 720p movie to fit in a single-layer DVD. The problem is the processors of the players. A single layer Blu Ray could easily play 1080p without murdering your hardware.

    I think Blu Ray was a necessary format but the cost of it pretty much dug the grave of optical discs. I'd gladly have bought a blu ray burner for backups if it was more cost effective than a 1TB hard drive. Aside from the reasons mentioned in the article, optical discs are nice for backups because:
    * They're dirt cheap (or supposed to be, not sure what the excuse is for Blu Ray since the manufacture process is very similar to DVD)
    * If the capacity is high enough, they save more physical space than other media. Think of it like this - if you have a 300GB disc and get a 100 pack cake box, that's about 30TB of data in a pretty small area.
    * The higher capacity discs have very reasonable write speeds. For archiving, seek times don't really matter.

    I'm not sure where tape drives stand today, but I feel that magnetic storage doesn't belong in this decade.

    I'm sure this is strictly for storage purposes at this point. If they try to replace Blu-Ray movies with these discs this soon nobody will buy them except the extremely rich. Unless they find a way to make them compatible with current blu-ray players.

    Title is Samsung + Panasonic, but the body of the article is about Sony + Panasonic. Something is wrong.

    Depending on the price, I like this as a viable option. I dislike Cloud Storage (although it is convenient) and don't trust it fully, so I'm always backing up my data at home anyways.

    1000 terre bytes on DVD?? sound great but i seem sadly what i see happening is they will market the dvd disc as something else are charge more. love the idea though, would be intresting to see how fast they could write to that size

    1TB HDD is still cheaper than 1TB of bluray discs so i think 300GB SSD will be cheaper than 300GB discs in the future - that is amazing progress where silicon chip is cheaper than plastic or is it that they want to rip us off ?

    It's explained quite clearly in the article that the main purpose of the 300 GB disk is for long term data storage. They are not trying to put a super duper ultra mega HD mpeg2 movie on that disk

    I'm quite concerned with the state of peoples mentality lately...every new "sweet, they are working towards getting us more advanced technology" is attacked with "Yeah, ok, like that's reliable, cheap, etc. etc. etc.", negative upon negative upon negative feedback. Seriously, whatever happened to the day that new more advance technology was every nerd/geeks happiest days?

    the thing is, for me at least, i dont even own a disc burner anymore, well there is one in a dusty box, they are useless for me, you can buy and download things online without the hassle of going to some damn store to get an overpriced piece of **** optical discs should go away for good, they only want it because they think they are fighting pirates and maybe feeling better selling "phyisical" things

    well im sure skidrow and these guys are ripping all games off their discs, not steam

    300GB on a single Disc is impressive, however i would never use it as storage.
    External HDD, NAS and servers are all my preference to be used as storage.

    I just wanna see flash get dirt cheap and global average internet speeds to ramp up like 10x then we can all tell optical storage to suck it!

    I haven't used optical media in YEARS! minus well the occasional console game or **** where its the only choice. even loading legit windows .iso files i put that stuff on a flash storage device i haven't like burned a cd or dvd since i was in like 5th grade in the mid 1990s or so.

    its cool to see advances but the faster it becomes less necessary the better.
