I need a bluray drive. What is the difference between these?
I was going to get one of these two but what is the difference? They both look to do the same things to me and I only plan on reading discs, not burning. Would I get any benefit for the more expensive one?
Nothing that I can see. In fact, if you're not burning DVD-RAM discs , the LG model has the faster access time for Blu-Ray discs. I'd go that route anyway.
Don't forget to purchase the software to play the blu-rays.
Only difference is one is a Green Unit.
