Post by Once_upon_a_Tyne »

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to leave my review of Asmcom's service.

I'm a very cautious, sceptical person so approach any online transactions with a natural timidness.
That said, it was apparent to me that this was a very trustworthy and reliable service.

Asmcom liased with me via email and made some great suggestions as to what I could go for, offering free thoughts and answers to my questions.
I opted for s "Hitachi LG-BH16NS5 UHD Friendly drive Cross-Flashed to a WH16NS60 Official Drive on firmware 1-02mk, fitted in a Vantec Enclosure".

I ordered this two days ago and it arrived today - super fast!
It was so well wrapped that I don't think an elephant or a tank stepping on it could've damaged it.
The drive and enclosure are brand new and it works out of the box instantly.
In addition, I know I can email Asmcom for some support in the future (should that be required), which is invaluable.

I just wanted to thanks Asmcom wholeheartedly, but also to offer his services to others with a 10/10 recommendation. Really, I couldn't be happier.

Thanks a lot,


Andy

Just wanted to add my appreciation to Asmcom,
I emailed Asmcom looking for a LG_BU40N drive and enclosure and had a reply the next day with all the details needed to make my decision to buy. Excellent response time from Asmcom. The drive arrived in the post when promised and was extremely well packaged. The drive was already set up in the enclosure and the firmware already flashed.
Connected it up and within minutes was up and running. Spectre 4k done in 58 mins and No time to die just finishing in about the same time.

I cannot recommend Asmcom highly enough!

I contacted Asmcom looking for a pre flashed drive and after some excellent advice I went for a BU-40N in a Vantec enclosure. Great communication, especially as it was over the holiday period. Drive arrived ready to roll and works well. Would definitely recommend and use again.

LG-BH16NS5 V1.02DE Great service from Asmcom

Post by steve_bcs »

Bought a vantec enclosed Ripper on Ebay from Asmcom. Excellent communications and advice throughout the process. My first rip of a 4k UHD BD worked perfectly.
I have never ripped UHD before so this is all a bit new to me A recommended ebayer who knows what he is talking about. Many thanks. :D

I do have some questions generally about how to include the BD movie menu on playback. EG Die another Day - disc has subtitles on the opening scene. the mkv file defaults to not showing these. I found out how to include them using vlc player when paying back on my laptop so I know the option is in the file. where do I ask in this forum these kinds of questions please?

Hello Steve

Thank for kind review. If you want to play back unofficially with VLC and you would like menus. Please install Java 32 Bit and the 64 bit.

Enable VLC in MakeMKV setting.

To play disc with VLC.

Open VLC/Select Media/Open Disc/Tick Radio Button for Bluray.

Then select the Disc Device drop down menu and pick your ISO Disc.

To make ISO file.

Open MakeMKV then select full folder backup, which is second icon from the left under View, tick decrypt the process folder backup.

Open Imgburn and make ISO out of the folders from the backup that MakeMKV made.

Use will need something like Virtual Clone Drive to mount the ISO and you should have full playback with menus.

Regards

Asmcom

Re: OFFER!!! (Asmcom:) BU40N £110.00 Free Shipping UK / Vantec Premium Enclosure, Excellent Service!!!

Post by steve_bcs »

You’re welcome & Thanks!

So the only way to have menus from a ripped uhd/ dvd is to create an iso file?

Vlc isn't my default player, I just use it on my laptop to check the rips have worked.

I’ll be streaming direct from my vortexbox linux pc, which my tv sees & plays fine. My other query is how to have my avr recognise the audio track as atmos. Btw the film i mentioned above was the wrong one. I meant no time to die. Cant get the subtitles for passages in french/ italian to show.

MakeMKV cannot rip a DVD disc to full folder but it can backup Bluray and 4K Bluray to full folder.

You could also use MPC-HC

Please read this link on official 4k playback

https://drive.google.com/file/d/18hUkeQ ... p=drivesdk

Some media players you don't need to create a ISO. Just use the index file.

The information you are looking for is all on this forum, so just a little light reading

Thanks asmcom!

I'll be ripping around 15 4kUHD discs; 8 Blueray and around 54 DVD's . Not the largest collection in the world but its a start.

Being able to select/deselect subtitles and dolby atmos playback are my main interest with the ripped 4kUHD discs. Its not the end of the world for us if thats not possible. As a rule I'm looking for ease of use mainly for my other half as she isnt confident firing up the blueray player and av system in my new media room, so having a click & play streaming option albeit from a hard drive in the loft, like netflix etc (which she is used to) on a secondary uhd tv in our lounge without atmos will be fine.

For the full 4k uhd atmos experience I'll just put in the disc. :D

A hearty recommendation for Asmcom!

I bought an external Drive which had been enabled to allow me to digitise my 4K films for my plex at the end of August. During December I started having problems with it and contacted him seeking help. Given the time that had elapsed many would have had little interest in helping a customer at that stage but he could not have been more helpful and generous with both his time and expertise. He assisted me in pinpointing the issue and largely resolving it. Whilst its not entirely fixed, we both agree it appears to be a fault on my motherboard but he has still offered to help me in future when hopefully I can work around that.

In a world were so many are looking to do the bare minimum to aid others Asmcom comes highly recommended from me as one who will go above and beyond.

Yes, I am always happy to help my loyal customers. You won't get this service and backup if you buy a Drive on Amazon.

Together we will fix this problem and thanks for the review I did not expect.

Quick review: I just purchased an LG-BU40N 1-03MK with a Vantec Slim Enclosure from Asmcom and I would rate their responsiveness and service as *superb*.
Comms on the item, payment, postage etc all very clear. The drive was received very quickly, was well packaged, and works like a dream - first UHD backup made with no issues. I would probably not have had the expertise to flash a drive, never mind pick a model that worked out of the box without issues, so this service is much appreciated (and the pricing is still excellent).
I would not hesitate to recommend Asmcom for your UHD drive needs. :D :D :D
Thanks!
