    Blu Ray Drive Specs for G20AJ?

    Hey all,

    what were the specs of the optical drive that's in the G20AJ?

    I remember i looked for it one time and failed to find a blu ray drive that fit, i know there is one out there but i can't remember which one.

    would this qualify? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...-279-_-Product

    i'd have to dig into my tower again after i just installed the 1080 lol… i have an external one for now so it's not a big deal i'm just curious.

    What's the consensus for the best Blu Ray drive for us? I'd be interested in swapping in as I'm getting mine shortly, can't believe they didn't include one even in the top model I'm getting. I'd want to paint it to match/look stock.

    The Panasonic UJ-272 works and fits perfectly. No problems here. For the original bezel on the G20, you can just remove it from the old optical drive and attach it on to the the new blue ray easily.

    I know what I'm buying! Love the Samsung SSDs also, I was looking at that Corsair adapter (not to hijack the thread) but went with a different one. Good to know that one works though incase mine does not. Kudos with the bezel swap over!
