  1. As answered in your other post:
    For Internal drive $70:
    LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136250
    NOTE BD-R and BD-RE identifies that it will burn Blue-ray disks (-R is write once, -RE is rewritable Blue-ray disk)
    .. This drive alo supports burning to M-Disks, many drives do not.

    PS The vast majority of OEM drives do NOT come with Blue-ray playback software. Play-back soft ware on sale is around $50+

    Have 2 LG blu-ray burners and a pioneer model - NO complaints

    Addition choices:

    For Future:

    Don't get that, get this. Exactly the same model, except it comes with the software included and is $2.99 cheaper. Always pays to shop around a little. Yes, I am aware the model number appears different, but the WH instead of the BH prefix just indicates that the one drive is OEM (no software) and the other is retail (software included).
