I wanted to buy the Blu-ray drive for my HTPC but not sure which one is good yet in a good price! It must be in form factor of 5.25. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

Just to play BD ? Or play and rip ?

New Egg / Amazon would be my first places to try. Tiger Direct is another good one . If your a bit more adventurous , you could do E-bay since you said "good price"

Define good price.

Couple of weeks ago newegg had a BD-ROM for like $50 shipped.

6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! Power to the CableCard and WMC7!!!

60$ Lite-ON 12x BDROM is the cheapest I seen (from brands I prefer). But play/rip only no burn. Does the job and I believe it's not riplocked. Havent tried it yet.

I paid $49 on Ebay for an external Toshiba BD Drive (TS-LB23L) and it works great. I even use it to rip BDs.
