Curious about cons in buying this BR Drive over a DVD Burner

Hey guys. So I've been looking at Blu-Ray drives and I was curious about something.

Now as we all know, these are your every day cd/dvd burners right here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=Property&N=100007589&IsNodeId=1&OEMMark=0&PropertyCodeValue=365:6653,384:6820&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20

What I'm curious about is, will this Blu-Ray Reader WRITE Dvds? and if it does, will it be extremely slow? or the same speeds about?

Do I need a blu-ray BURNER to also burn DVDs?

What I'm hoping is that the Blu-Ray Reader will only read blu-rays, but will burn dvds. Am I correct?

    If you are talking about something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106325, it won't write DVDs.

    You need http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151199, which reads BluRay and writes DVDs.
  2. I see, how can I know for sure whether one will write DVDs or not
