I’m finally going to venture into Blu-Ray. I’d like to know which is a better blu-ray rom? I’d appreciate any advice/comments. I’m not looking into getting a Blu-ray burner yet. Thanks in advance!

LG CH08LS10,$119.99

or

Liteon iHES208-08, $109.99

Bump…no one has any comments?

If you are just playing back blu ray movies, either will be fine. I doubt either will match your Samsung 203B for burning dvds or cds.

The Lite-on is said to be the best available BDRom drive for scanning burned blu ray media, if that will ever be a concern for you.

:slight_smile: Thanks Kerry56! I do appreciate your comments. I’m not into scanning burned blu-ray media yet. The blu-ray drives and media is still too expensive for my taste.

If official read speed is a concern for you, you should get the LG.

The LG will read BD-ROM and BD-R DL at 8x while the Lite-On at 4x. I believe you can read-speed patch the Lite-On firmware though.
