So I have gotten quite interested in blue-ray and was wondering which blue-ray driver would suit me best.

1st. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

2nd. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

other recommendations would be helpful.

Also while doing some research I learned that blue-ray requires software, If this is indeed true what is the best software recommended.

I don't know if you noticed/considered this, but while the asus is a bit cheaper the lg is also a burner. Oem drives ship without cables and playback/burning software, but you might be able to find a decent free and legal software solution online(open source software, likely). for the few extra dollars, you might want to go with the burner. On a cost per gigabyte basis, the newer blu ray media is sometimes on sale for even cheaper than dvd and would burn the same amount of data notably faster as well.

Personally, I went with an LG model (a couple years back), but to be honest, it's probably a coin toss between the two.

I've heard some people have had success playing blu-ray movies using VLC. I lucked out when Newegg included PowerDVD9 with my OEM drive (for whatever reason). Beyond that, I can't make a recommendation.
