Default Help n Choosing a Blu-Ray reader/Burner?

I've finally talked the wife into letting me build a HTPC and need a recommendation for a Blu-Ray reader and/or burner? The prices have come down and still are falling, but not fast enough and are torn between backing them up onto another disc or leaving them on the HD.

Looked at this one, anyone using this?

Components are:

case: Centurion 541 Black w/Silver Trims Mini Tower, W/O window, W/O PSU - Refurbished (RC-541-SKN1) = $19.99

mem: OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2P10664GK $84.99, after rebate $64.99

ssd: OCZ Onyx OCZSSD2-1ONX32G 2.5" 32GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) $$79.99, after rebate $ 59.99

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F2 HD154UI 1.5TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive $89.99 disc $79.99
