Best Blu Ray PC player for my HDTV 1080p

Hi guys!!,

I just want a good Blu ray player for my new HDTV GP1U 1080p 1920x1080, that can be connected to the PC internally.

I dont like a lot the Blu ray burner because each disc cost around $22.. its a lot of money for only just one.

So I saw this one: , but i dont now anything about blu ray. I know that nmy video card its a BFG 8800 GT HDCP ready, and my procesor Intel E6850 3.0GHZ with Corsair XMS2 4GB 800MHZ :).

Thanks you!.

go with Sony, after all, they problaly have sold the most BR-player mechanism. I see they are at Fry's for about $130.

Oh, by-the-way, BR disc media can be had for about $10. Not that it matter.

Totally agree about using Sony, after all they are the developers.Saw another manufacturer's unit and was troubled, seemed a bit wobbly.
