Im making a new build and the only thing left now is to buy a bluray unit and im trying to decide. What are the differences between those 2? there is a price diference of like 50€. I can't understand what's going on.

 

On this page they say:

https://www.amazon.es/Asus-BW-16D1HT-Unidad-Blu-ray-interna/dp/B00DRHOL44

 

 
Blu-Ray writing at 16X: create a 25 GB disc in just 8 minutes
M-disc preserves your recordings for a thousand years
BDXL support: up to 128 GB on one disk
E-Green saves up to 50% energy
Protect data with password control and file encryption
Record clubs in three simple steps
Enjoy 3D Blu-ray content (PRO version only)
Enjoy the most realistic sound with Dolby Digital and DTS HD (PRO version only)

 

So what im trying to understand is: Does the PRO version have a special hardware for 3d blu ray and dobly digital and DTS HD that the normal version have, or they simply are selling a software to playback this content, so the hardware is exactly the same, and I can just pick the non pro version for cheaper price and then just try to find software that can play 3d blu-ray instead of their propietary hardware...?? please help
