Which blu-ray drive, please help.

Hi guys. I'm in the market for a new blu-ray reader/writer. I've searched forums and benchmark sites, but have still come up short of a selection. A while ago, I was looking at the Asus (BW 1LT, the one with the different looking front), but that has since been discontinued. I'm a bit of a novice in many pc aspects, does the cache size (4mb v. 8mb) make much difference?? Just wondering which is the betyer out of the following two (as far as specs are concerned):

or

Thank you all in advance for your help.

  1. Get the ASUS. Save yourself some money. The cache size only effects the burst rate when burning data so you will be fine with either one! Hope this helps!

    Thank you, it does help.

    Would you still select the Asus after taking in to account rhe difference in BD-Rom Access atime? And also, the LG has the quad-layer bizzo, what do you think?

    Pretty sure too that neither support LightScribe.

    Thanks again. :)
