Liteon iHES212 BD ComboIntroduction

Blu Ray might just be a stop gap before true HD streaming, but for now it’s one of the easier ways to get hold of high definition movies and other media; especially since it’s becoming more affordable. While they used to cost hundreds of pounds, now you can get yourself an internal one like the one we’re reviewing today for around £60. This one is the Liteon iHES212 12x Internal, let’s give it a look.
