Wanting to Upgrade to Blu Ray drive

Hello, I have a G75V running windows 8. Recently I've been wanting to up grade the standard DVD burner in my G75V to a Blur Ray writer. I did some research and I'm pretty sure the drive i need to buy is this one "Panasonic UJ240" but i wanted to make sure before I bought anything. Amazon has that one pretty cheap right now and i figured now would be a good time to upgrade it, if possible.

Thanks for your help.

That ODD should work just fine.
The
asus estore has the same model for $144.99.
That's a good buy you found there, buy it!

Before you go spending money I have a G75VX which according to what I read already has a Blu Ray Writer in it, you noted your model as the G75V is it VW or VX? the rest of the model number would help too.
I truly believe that there are people on this planet who should voluntarily remove them selves from the gene pool.

I'm trying to do this too. Any guides on how to open the back up without wrecking it?

ETA: Never mind, I figured it out.
