Something that made me sad when I bought Sony Vaio Z12, it comes with DVD drive instead of Blu-Ray drive. The Blu-Ray version of Z doesn’t come to Indonesia, but it’s not the main reason that I prefer the DVD model. Someone told me that it’s better spend the extra $500 to buy PS3 instead of choosing the Blu-Ray version of Z. But now I found that I don’t have to spend $500 to get portable Blu-ray player, the cheaper one available at only $289: the Portable Blu-ray Super Multi Drive from AMEX Digital.
The Portable Blu-ray Super Multi Drive supports on the Quiet Drive Technology reduces the noise level of audio and video playback while also delivering increased writing reliability. Liquid Crystal Tilt/Blur Compensator plays and records to discs more reliably – the ad Research technology that compensates for warped discs. Dual/Double Layer recording provides nearly twice the capacity of a single layer recordable Blu-ray-R (25 Gbytes vs. 50 Gbytes).
