Blu-ray playback and burning software (Windows 7)?

I just received a BD-RE drive for Christmas and I am now in need of some software. (Currently running Windows 7, fyi.) I was considering Nero for blu-ray burning but I was wondering if there’s a better program (I was never a fan of Nero back in the old days.) Not worried about price here, just a good recommendation. Also, I need a program for blu-ray playback… currently just have Media Player Classic installed for watching video files.

Thanks for any help. Will choose best answer out of the bunch.
