Default Blu-Ray PC Drives?

Hi there. I'm going to go blu for sure and am looking for the best pc-drive out there to do it.

So far I've seen the Pioneer BDC-202 & BDC-S02. I don't want to write, just view the films. As of now I'd go for the BDC-202, but am open to suggestions. Any info on units I've missed would be great, thanks.

Sorry if I missed any current lists.

I only use Plextor drives personally. Might check out their PX-B900A. I know you said you didnt want a writer, but figured I would throw in my .02.

Thanks for the info. I should've pointed-out that the main reason for not wanting a burner was the major-price-difference.

I could justify 200 for a drive, 250 if it was awesome or had something special. That's why I'm looking at the pioneer - around 140, delivered.

Looking around most of the drives I see are burners. However I know Pioneer makes good equipment and would say from a reader stand point I would think you would have no regrets in picking up the pioneer.
