Hitachi adds 250GB HD to Wooo Blu-ray recorder


Here comes the Wooo BH250, the new Hitachi Blu-ray set-top recorder with a built-in 250GB HD for storage of content. So it’s really a Blu-ray disk burner/DVR combo, which is a pretty sweet mash-up.

We’ve heard that Blu-ray recording was coming to the Wooo series before, but this is the first actual model that goes on sale for the public.

It’s set to hit Japan in June, and hopefull we’ll see it here, but you know that no matter where you are, it’s going to be expensive. But if you’re a high-end home theater nerd, you’re already wiping drool from your keyboard.
