Blu Ray Drives

Hello has anyone added a blu ray drive to their Gen 8? I have seen all of the panasonic ones but there is no bezel. Does anyone know where to get a bezel for it or one that I can re-use the bezel from the HP optical drive?

I don't have Blu-Ray, but I am using a Panasonic/Matsushita UJ862 DVDRW drive in my Gen8.

 

I am thinking the bezels are likely to be compatible.

P.S.  A quick eBay search for me resulted in a number of Panasonic UJ-162 BluRay drives with bezel.

You'll still need HP's mounting parts (or SchoonDoggy's ODD mounting bracket) and the necessary cabling setups for a slim optical drive if you don't have it.  See my notes:

LoneWolf thanks I have all of the mounting parts and cables because I bought the HP Optional OOD.

I am running a uj-162 I bought off ebay. I have had it in there for ages. Still too cheap to buy the bracket to lock it into place though.
