Looking to buy a replacement drive my trusty Asus died after 3+ years and ripped well over 1500 discs including GOT.

Thinking of going with an LG drive this time, just want to check something, LibreDrive is only mentioned for the Asus drive, is that case or should all flashed drivers have this?
Hello Moe,

Drive will be posted tomorrow morning

Asmcom :mrgreen:
Thanks Ascom, received the drive today have put in the drive housing and all looks good. Will try ripping a few discs this evening. Thanks for the great service and quick turn around time.

Another very satisfied customer! After consulting with Asmcom, I bought a Hitachi LG-BH16NS55 UHD Cross-Flashed to a WH16NS60 Official Drive on firmware 1-02mk with a OWC enclosure. It arrived very fast and it’s working flawlessly.
I already ripped 5 UHDs with no problem whatsoever.
The communication was always very informative and detailed.

Highly recommended seller!

I have had brilliant service from Asmcom. Starting with advice and finishing with creating and supplying the drive equipment I needed, it all went smoothly and efficiently. There is no need to worry about a transaction with someone you have not dealt with before. Everything is above board and properly done. My parcel arrived brilliantly packed and after connecting up everything worked perfectly. Very prompt and friendly, efficient service. Highly recommended.

Another satisfied customer. Really pleased with my new Hitachi LG-BH16NS55 Cross-Flashed to a Hitachi LG-WH16NS6. Fast drive and able to backup 4K UHD without a problem.

Great communication and prompt delivery.

Cheers

Hi

I'm looking for advice on what drive I would be best including within the OWC Mercury Pro enclosure? I already own the LG-BU40N drive in a slim Vantec enclosure, but would like a more durable desktop solution.

I don't particularly like the look of the Vantec 5.25" enclosure due to the domed end. I'd be unlikely to be orientating the drive on its side and it will almost certainly always be layed flat so the domed end would look out of place.

I'm also unsure as to what if any disadvantages there are to buying a drive that can rip files using both makeMKV and DVDFab? Am I better off going with just MakeMKV compatibility?

What is the best drive to partner with the OWC Mercury Pro enclosure, both with support for DVDFab or with support for just MakeMKV?

I should mention that I'm a Mac user running MacOS 11.6. Not too sure as to whether or not that would make a difference though?



Thanks

So I think I've narrowed it down to either one of the following, but which one or is there a better option?

OWC Mercury Pro With LG BH16NS40 with WH16NS60 FW v1.02mk, 4K UHD Friendly!
Compatible with: (MakeMKV)
(MakeMKV Support) No Sleep Bug & Super Fast Drive
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264838555611

BH16NS55 with WH16NS60 FW v1.02mk, in OWC Mercury Pro, 4K, UltraHD, UHD Friendly
Compatible with: (MakeMKV)
(MakeMKV Support) No Sleep Bug & Super Fast Drive
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264922440116

OWC Mercury Pro With LG BH16NS40 with WH16NS60 FW v1.00DE, 4K UHD Friendly!
Compatible with: (MakeMKV & DVDfab)
(MakeMKV Support) No Sleep Bug & Super Fast Drive
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264838556561


Also, why is there a £10 difference in price between the first option and the last? They both appear to be the same drives and enclosures?



Thanks

Thanks
The difference in price is because the drive that is cheaper, is an older model, year 2020. The other models are all 2021. I do not like having old stock, so this is lower price based on the drive being an older model.

Have sent you a PM

A couple of weeks ago I purchased the LG BU40N from Ascom by Ebay. When I received the drive everything was nicely packaged so that it would not get damaged by transport. The drive works really nice and Ascom was a great help for getting me started. I am one happy customer and I would highly recommend him.

Just to say thanks to Ascom for the great service and quick delivery. Ordered an Asus BW16D1 on Tuesday and it arrived on Friday. Installed it over the weekend and ripped a couple of 4k blu-rays with no problems. Many thanks Fiona
