Samsung has announced completion of the technical development of its Blu Ray Disc Drives. Based on the design of Samsung's External DVD Writer, Samsung's Blu Ray Disc Drive supports Firmware Live Updates that allow users to make certain that they always have the latest firmware version. It is also eco-friendly, and will be launched later this year.

Samsung's announcement of the completion of its Blu Ray disc drive is a major step ahead in the ODD technology battleground."
