    Default Blue Ray Disc Drives

    In case anyone is interested, I recently noticed that the blue ray disc drives have come way down in costs and some sites have some fairly good prices on the drives. Of course I'll always recommend overstock above all others first. Samsung and LG are amoung two of the lower cost drives for playing and burning blue ray. I personally will recommend the Samsung, because they're also offering PowerDVD 8 with the purchase for only around $109.00. Burn speed is still relatively low at 8X, but thats not too bad considering where we were 12 months ago.

    ~cheers~

    Does that edition of PowerDVD come with decent (granted, that's subjective) sound support or is it the OEM version that doesn't include DD 5.1/7.1 support? From what I recall, I got PowerDVD with my LG Blu-ray player but it didn't come with DD 5.1, so I just bought Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre instead.
