Just a question for blueray drives do they actually work fully? I am considering getting one purely for the capacity the discs can hold (useful for me backing up a lot of stuff).

i know watching movies isn't easy at all at the moment, i am talking about using it for data discs.

the latest version of vlc (1.0) is supposed to be able to handle Blu-Ray (for movie watching).

I haven't tried it myself, but it's worth a shot.
