Default Blu Ray Burner/Remote Advice Needed

So I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on a HTPC, but I was thinking that when we get our big ass wall mounted TV, DVD just won't cut it so why not throw a Blu Ray burner in it instead.

I know nothing about these drives and I'm not a video-phile so there's a good chance that I won't even notice the difference between some of them unless it's something drastic like comparing BR to DVD.

So my question to all of you is what should I be looking for? I need to go low-end on this so entry level is just peachy since I'll need to pick up a remote.

That's the second thing I'll need help with since until now I haven't had the need for one. Again, low end is fine so have at it!

Here's the front runners so far:



Intel i5 3570K, MSI Z77Z-GD55, 4x2GB Kingston Genesis 2133mhz, 120GB Mushkin Chronos SSD, 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue, Intel 210 cache drive, MSI 7850 Power Edition OC, Corsair H100, Silverstone Strider 750w Gold, Killer2100 NIC, Corsair 600T SE White, LG W2242, ROCCAT Kone+, Isku & Kave, 3TB Seagate Backup+, 200GB Western Digital Scorpio Black external drive
