What optical drive

Hey guys, so I want to buy a new optical drive (my old one is dead) and basically, im looking for something that will both read and burn CDs/DVDs. the other thing is, i want one that can play blu-ray movies, but i dont necessarily need to burn blu-ray disks. is there any way to get a blu-ray player that only burns up to DVDs? (trying to save money) if it is the case that i do in fact need to buy a full blu-ray burner in order to do this, can anyone suggest a reliable, affordable one? thanks!

    The additional components required to burn a DVD as well as read them is so cheap that all blu-ray readers I can find are also DVD burners, because why not?

    Something like this LG would do well for you
