Help choosing a Blu-Ray burner.

I need to buy an optical drive (blu-ray burner) for my new build and don't want to spend a ton of money so I've narrowed my selection down to the drives listed below. My question is regarding the LG models, one is listed as Windows 7 compatible on NewEgg, however the 4 reviews of the $159 one say it's not supported. The funny part is the $99 one (basically the same model number) doesn't show Win 7 support under 'details' yet has 232 reviewers and almost every one of them is saying they use Win 7. What gives. I assume BOTH will work with Windows 7 but there is a huge difference in price and the only thing I see different is 2MB vs 4MB cache.

My question is this, is there a big difference between 2MB vs 4MB cache? Will both support Win 7? Both have 180ms 'BD-ROM Access Time'. Which one out of the 3 would you guys go with?

1) LG WH10LS30K 10X Blu-ray Burner - $99

2) LG WH10LS30 10x Blu-Ray Burner - $159
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136186

3) LITE-ON 8MB Cache iHBS112 - $110

Thanks.
