Hi, I'm looking to get a bluray combo drive for my PC, and am currently looking at LG.
I wish to play bluray and dvd movies, burn CD's & DVD's. what kind of read speeds do i need? is 8x enough for smooth playback? or should i go with 10x?

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.

DVD burner specs are the same. Either one will get the job done without a problem.

I'm assuming BD-RE is rewriteable, which would not include commercial Bluray movies?

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.
