LG WH10LS30 - Clones and Compatibles



I wanted to compile a complete list of drives that are clones, re-badged, or nearly clones of the LG WH10LS30.

I just bought a WH10LS30k from NewEgg. It was manufactured in August and came with the 1.00-07 firmware on it. I’ve read in other threads that the BH10LS30 is a clone of the WH10LS30. Since cvs just posted new (seemingly official) firmware 1.00-09 for the BH10LS30 I was wondering if anyone has flashed a WH with BH firmware. Is it advisable? Would I loose some functionality?

Thanks, ilnot
