Thanks for the feedback. By the way, I am not set on LG, I just want to find a blu-ray writer that is good quality and is good for ripping commercial dvd & blu-ray discs (as stated above I want to back-up my collection).
1) These 2 LG drives list playing 3D as one of their capabilities. Do all blu-ray writers play 3D or does it have to list it as a feature?
2) I notice these two LG drives also support dual, triple and quad layer discs, but older models only support up to dual. I am hoping to get a blu-ray writer that is somewhat future proofed, so I was thinking that maybe it was important to look for one that supports the quad layer discs? What are your thoughts on this?
