"Contract-manufacturing quotes for PC-use Blu-ray Disc (BD) drives have dropped to US$70-80 currently, still much higher than about US$20 for DVD drives, according to Taiwan-based makers.

Despite the price drop, BD will not become popular until prices for BD discs fall to a low enough level to replace DVD discs as a mainstream optical storage format, the sources noted."
