There are LG drives available in the Microcenter bulk bin for $20-30 that work fine. Not like many people are doing a ton of burning these days, but they've served me well for burning and loading Windows ISOs. Never had an issue playing Blu-Ray movies either. You'll need a program to play them (like PowerDVD), so keep that in mind. There are some ways to watch them for free, but they're pretty clunky most of the time.
Thanks. I know there are lots of reviews out there. [H] is a savvy crowd. Figured it couldn't hurt to ask.
Not looking for anything fancy. Thought burner would be a nice bonus. Being on a 43" 16:10 720p plasma, don't bother with BD much but when they do come up I use an old PS3 which is a bit cumbersome. And I know the dreaded YLOD is coming soon. Planned on going to MC this weekend anyway. Will take a look.
