Recommend a Blu Ray Drive - PLEASE

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I would like to see some solid suggestions for a Blu Ray Drive. It will be going into a new Sandy Bridge rig. Ideally it would cost around $65 or so. Willing to go a bit higher if the quality is awesome. I believe this code EMCYTZT345 gives 15% off at Newegg.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, these are the ones I came up with. Mind you, any of the OEM ones are without software to play Blu Ray movies.

Anyone else think I should skip a blu ray drive due to the terrible software out there? Nothing good yet from what I can tell. Arc Soft and PowerDVD get below average marks on average.

Any drive from LG, Lite-On or Samsung should be good. Playback software can be the sticky widget.

I've got nothing but love for TMT3. Only problem it has ever given me was with Fight Club, but it was fixed quickly enough. TMT5 may be a whole other ballgame though. Don't get me started on PowerDVD. Ugh.

I wish one of those came with TMT5. Suppose I could simply rip the blu ray, but that seems like one heck of an extended process.
