BluRay Drive
« on: January 15, 2015, 08:44:05 AM »
Anyone have a BluRay drive on their rig?  If so, what do you use it for?  Any recommendations on what to get.  Most look similar between the major players.
My rig runs solitaire on ultra high resolution!

I can't remember the last time I used physical media besides a flash drive.
Please just walk away. I don't want to have to stand here and say something so awesome that I'll have to remember it the rest of the day. Thank you!

Well, someone's gotta make those BD rips for the rest of us.

I didnt even install a optical drive in my current rig.

As long as its cheap its good, DL disks and lite scribe are nice IMHO.

I have LG I bought for like $30 from Amazon.  I use it to rip and encode my BluRay's on to my media center.  Literally no other use.
