Recommended drive for non UHD discs?

Post by John117 » Thu May 09, 2019 12:59 pm

I have a couple WH16NS40 with original 1.02 firmware that I want to flash to get rid of the sleep bug. I plan to use those for my UHD discs.

However, I have a few hundred regular Blu-ray’s I’d like to get ripped and with my schedule it’s better if I can start a bunch all at once instead of coming back to the computer every 30-45 minutes to swap a couple discs.

So I’m thinking of adding 3-4 more drives, just need something basic and proven. Most of the topics and recent information I’ve seen is regarding UHD drives.

Anyone have a suggestion? Thank you.

Why not stick with the same model drive? The WH14NS40 is another cheaper option.This also gives you the option of flashing those drives, at a later date, if needed. Also, if you want LibreDrive compatibility, you should probably stick with LG or ASUS drives.
