I know the difference between the drives, OEM & Retail but posted this way to help others find it.
These drives are on sale at what seems to be a reasonable price. I’ve bought Lite-on drives after my first CD Burner which was an Artec.
This will be my first Blu-ray and I see it has BDXL and M-Disc which most do not. I’ve read everything I can find and it is my understanding that it does not allow bitsetting and is not riplocked. Is the bitsetting related to the Mediatek chipset or just firmware?
I’ve been around here for quite awhile reading and never posted. I have to make two posts to see the scans.
I have a couple other questions. Is Lite-on expected or have they announced a BDXL drive that I have missed and are you guys happy with this LG drive?
I know there will be better sales but I do need to clean out my HDD and back up a lot of stuff. I built a new desktop and copied the old IDE HDD into a folder to have everything available on the new computer without having to worry about leaving anything behind. It has files from the 80’s.
I plan to back up the whole mess to BD so I don’t miss anything and use DVD for individual backup from there, photos, music etc.
