German CT magazine got their hands on a pre-production Samsung Blu-ray Burner for PCs and published a review.

The Samsung SH-B022 features a 2x BD Disc writing speed. A 25GB BD disc took 43:40min. to burn. The review about this Samsung Blu-ray drive is pretty positive. The final version will also support double layer BD discs with 50GB capacity. What is also still missing in the SH-B022 is the AACS copy protection, which is still not finalized. The Samsung Blu-ray burner is supposed to sell for around $500 in April. To use it to playback HD movies on your PC you need apparently at least a 3Ghz CPU and a 128MB Graphics-Card that supports that support copy protection interfaces HDMI, DVI or HDCP.
More details in this report on Heise (German).

As reported serveral movie studios announced their Blu-ray line-up for 2006 at the CES 2006.
