Re: Asus BW-16D1HT 3.03

I'm going to give a caveat answer to your question. ASSUMING it comes with 3.03 then making it LibreDrive compatible is fairly academic at this point. I'd use the patched Windows flasher and flash Mike's MK 3.03 on it and be done. My caveat is that if it comes with 3.10 that ASUS just released, it ...

Re: Blu-ray Rewriter + discs

I can only comment directly on what I own. My current setup uses an ASUS BW-16D1HT and an LG WH16NS40 for primary duties, and both work well for DVD and BD. The LG is already UHD-enabled, and the ASUS can be, when I want to (only own two UHD titles, bought for testing). Depending on the country you...

The Pioneer gets high marks, EXCEPT when it comes to UHD. It is not currently supported, and may never be, for ripping UHD. The LG works for everything, but, depending on its firmware, may need to be "reflashed" for UHD capability. There are also ASUS models with similar specs (and they seem to be ...

what can you recommend either way?

thanks.
