Blu-Ray Drive for

I’ve had DVDFab for many years now and just added the Blu-Ray to Blu-Ray option. I’m now looking for a burner. Locally my Best Buy has the LG BH08LS20 for $220 less 10% coupon plus tax. Seems like a decent deal, but, have heard the read speed on this drive is sluggish. Do you think this will be corrected down the road with firmware updates? Or are there better drive alternatives - if so please list models.
