Those of you buying the newer internal Pioneer drives, where are you getting them? Seems like they mostly have to be purchased via Japan-based eBay sellers.
BDR-S13UBK I just brought directly from Pioneer USA site # https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA ... BDR-S13UBK

BDR-XD07UHD Brought this from B&H Photo # https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/ ... e_usb.html

I found a LG WH14NS40 Rom ver 1.00 Made June 2013 for 45.00 CND Plus G
would this work or should buy a new one I can get a New LG WH14NS40 for 100 CND
I'm comfortable with flashing it myself since I've Flash motherboard's before and this doesn't seem much different
And the software looks fairly straightforward

Any drive from 2013 would NOT work for UHD, because it was built 2 years prior to UHD being defined.

It would work for DVD and BD, but you can buy new drives for that price that only does those.
