Cheapest Blu-Ray Drive?
 
Want to buy a blu-ray drive for my HTPC setup...

can people recommend the cheapest one available? best bang for the buck?

Also I'm using Vista 64bit if that makes a difference

I'd want to be able to burn DVDs but just read Blu-ray

I've seen the LG drive and it looks good but I've read a few comments about how it has compatibility problems with Vista.... I use Vista 64 so I'm a little worried about that.

how can an optical drive have compatibility problems with an OS? That doesn't really make sense. Either way I've had one since Christmas and love it. And yes I am using Vista.

Blu-ray burner would be nice, but still too expensive. I wonder how long 50Gb takes to burn, all night??? :biggrin:
