So my LG BH10LS30 died this weekend, and I’m looking to replace it. Most of my burning needs are for CD and DVD, so to be honest I’m not even sure I really need a Blu-ray burner, but maybe a combo drive. My first priority is watching Blu-ray movies on my computer, so I need something that isn’t too picky about discs/light scratches, i.e.: a good reader. If it’s AHCI compatible that would be great too, as I don’t want to have to fiddle with my HDDs if I don’t have to.
I can get an ihes112 and similar drives for $59.99, or for the extra $20 I could get the BDR-207DBK if it’s a good reader. If not, I don’t really need the burn capability.
