Default Optical drive?

Hey guys, building a pc and would just like some help on deciding which optical drive.
Im going to connect the pc to my TV for when I want to watch a film and see this as a cheap option for Blu-ray playing , the drives i've found are:

Scan.co.uk: LG Blu-Ray Combo, CH10LS20.AUAR, SATA, Retail


Scan.co.uk: Lite On BD-ROM, IHOS104-37, SATA, Black, OEM


Scan.co.uk: Samsung Blu-Ray Combo, SH-B123L/RSBP, SATA, Retail

basically i would like it to be able to play Avatar in 1080p
Thanks advance on your opinions!
