I am looking at Panasonic UJ-240 External 6X Blu-Ray Burner and the LG Electronics 8X External Blu-ray ReWrite Drive BE08LU20. Does anyone have and feedback on these two drives? I can get both for $280 online. I am also open to any other suggestions.
I don't have experience with either but if I had to choose between these two drives I would go for the LG. It's faster and has an automatic tray (I don't like those flimsy laptop drives). It also has an eSata connector which should make bunring discs at high speeds smoother.
Another option would be to buy an internal drive and an external enclosure. Then you will have a much wider choice and you will probably save a few dollars.
