Compare the features/performance of the DVD burner since they might matter to you the most. xcmer June 10, 2010 5:47:33 PM Thanks, i'm looking at http://lgcommercial.com/product/UH10LS20/ http://lgcommercial.com/product/UH08LS10 second one looks better IMO, but is 8X Related resources Help choosing a Blu-Ray burner. - Forum Choosing a Blu-Ray Player - Forum Free Blu-ray Player for Mac on Cyber Monday - Forum Choose a video card for smooth Blu-Ray playback - Forum Laptop for Blu-ray playback: A10 & 4GB/6GB or A8 & 4GB/6GB, or A6,.. ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

WR2 June 10, 2010 7:49:58 PM 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. xcmer June 10, 2010 11:00:06 PM I guess i'll get which =ever i can find easiest then, thanks allot!
