    4x is plenty for smooth playback. LG would be a good choice too.
    Compare the features/performance of the DVD burner since they might matter to you the most.

  5. I'm assuming BD-RE is rewriteable, which would not include commercial Bluray movies?
  6. Yes. Like someone else might create and mail to you home movies on an re-writeable Blu-Ray.
    That's not saying this is a Blu-Ray burner only that it supports that RE media speed in reading.
  7. I guess i'll get which =ever i can find easiest then, thanks allot!
