i'm looking for good reliable internal/external blu ray burner for the price range <200$.
it should have esata or usb 2.0 or 3.0, 3d play, good read/write speed etc
i think its a stupid que but does blu ray burner reads/writes blu ray disks, dvd and cd?

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=N82E168...
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

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).
