Liteon EB1 6X External BD burner, UHD 4K compatible


Thought they had abandoned this market!

Has this piece of hardware every been sighted in the flesh?


It’s from PLDS:


Hardware Pioneer SAT-8A10. It looks like a Pioneer BDR-UD04 clone.


Thanks for the pointer to the thread on your forum. Fascinating.

So the question is: is LiteOn OEM-branding a drive that they are already producing for Pioneer, or are they truly out of the BD business altogether and a third source is manufacturing for both?


It is definitely produced at the Pioneer factory in China.
Identical clones of this Pioneer SAT-8A10 hardware design (Pioneer BDR-UD04) are on the Buffalo BRUHD-PU3-BK Ultra HD Blu-ray and Logitec LBD-PUD6U3L \ LBD-PVA6UCVBK Ultra HD Blu-ray models


This drive would be interesting if LiteOn makes an own firmware, but doesn´t look like so.

My Asus SBW-06D2X-U 1.03 is a rebadge of Pioneer BDR-UD03ASW, it is a stable writer but I prefer the LG BU40N if I want a slimdrive with a very good writing quality


This model is getting terrible reviews for construction quality and the stability of the USB socket which leads to frequent unwanted disconnections.


Is it that bad? It isn´t available in Germany.

I have an eBAU 108 6, which works flawless at reading but it seems to disconnect during writing (only?). Mostly it works for some GBs, but a full SL is rarely sucessfull, a full DL almost impossible.

Was never a problem with other external drives I have
