Blu-ray burners

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Been looking around for a blu-ray burner to add to my updated system, just bought a new case, mobo, HDD's, cooler and though that it wouldnt be right to just have a DVD drive and plus now that my home theatre has been converted to blu-ray, I have plenty of use for it. I have been reading through reviews and of the ones I was looking at the Asus BW-12B1LT stands out as the most suitable, reasonbly priced and one of the faster ones. I have no need for the lightscribe but I cant find the Asus to match it without lightscribe. Anyone have any comments to add? Or to recommend the Pioneer BDR-205 or one of the LG ones?

the only plus side with the lg drives is light-scribe and M-disc support(is it really worth the extra $30). the real problem with choosing a bd drive is that unlike stand alone players picture quality is based on what software you plan to use and what video card you are using.as i currently use a ps3 as my bluray player and for console gaming; im looking at a sony BD-5300S(#2 best seller on newegg as of this posting), as sony invented bluray im seriously considering picking up this drive when i do my build in a few weeks. the lg is #1, but the sony has 5 eggs with less reviews.

I probably wont do alot of watching if any on the drive as I already have a blu ray player as part of my home theater set up, it will be for just ripping and burning. My dvd drives have all had lightscribe but I have never used it.
