My build that I have ordered so far. Next on the list, need a BLU RAY BURNER:

i7 2600k
G Skill Ripjaw X Series 8 GB
Sapphire Radeon 6850
650tx Corsair PSU
Silverstone FT02

Application: I need a burner to rip blu rays to my hard drive and will not take too long. I dont need to burn blu rays just rip them. 30 minutes or faster reasonable?

What should I be looking at? What specs should I be looking at? 12x, 10x?

I have been looking at:
ASUS Internal Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1LT
Pioneer Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE

My strategy is to pick the products on newegg that I might be interested in, then study the user reviews. I might discount products that don't have enough reviews to be useful. I'll first look at the percentages of users that give only 1 or 2 eggs. If the percentage is too high I'll look at another product. Then the ones with the lower percentages, I'll read the ratings for 1 and 2 eggs to see what people have to say about them. The bad things that people say might be more helpful than the good things that people have to say.

If you don't need to burn BD's, then you just want a BD player not a BD burner, in case this saves you some money.
