    I believe either those two or the Sony DRU510A are the best for what you need.

    It's called DVR-Blue or something similar. I know that Sony, Phillips, Tobisha and NEC have been involved. It's similar to DVD but uses a blue laser, dunno how it works exactly, they claim it offers about 30gb per side. Not out yet though.


    Couldn't find many articles, but here's one http://securitysolutions.com/ar/dvrblue_working_name/

    Sony Model DW-U10A seems to be highly recommended. ~$230 i think

    If you don't mind having no firmware upgrades. Unless you flash it to a 510A.
