Finally the European version BDR-211EBK is coming out. It’s on Pioneer optical website, although I can’t find it yet for sale anywhere within Europe.
Finally, after months of waiting, the BDR-211EBK (EU version) of the drive is actually available for purchase at:
Can’t find any Central European sellers yet.
Hrmphf, 211EBK still not shipping in EU. Even the UK sellers are on back-order:
Same with LG WH16NS60 \ LG BH16NS60
Hope still it comes to the shops here
Alternate seems to get it fast (1 day)
Yay, finally. I tried to order it from newegg then out of the void the meant they couldnt deliver to germany.
Oops, you is alive
Still waiting for the BH16NS60 (BU40N is available since long time. Hope anyone get the LG and could say if the awful mechanics from actual GH24NSD1 is used or a better one.
Hehe. Just bought an xH16NS55 to play a little with it and UHD.
So you got one with 1.02? Or downgraded it?
I think it´s still the cheapest way to play with UHD. Hope the BD-series from LG will be much more reliable than the actual DVD-drives
Not yet arrived.
Drive comes with 1.03.
So, what does that mean in case of UHD BD (friendly)??
Can I crossflash/backflash this drive?!?
PS: Read a bit up at cdrinfo with translation from polish to english and it seems that crossflashing to BH16NS58 (fw 1.02?) is my best option!
Special regards to the creators of these masterpiece crossflashers!!!
Firmware 1.03 is not UHD BD (friendly)
You can undo only by modified DosFlash V2.0
Personally, I would change to the VinPower WH16NS58 model which supports discqiality tests and has support for Sony BD-R XL 128GB media.
We can help you “get the VinPower firmware”
Now in Japan is available the BDR-S12J-X and BDR-S12J-BK … now the M-DISC is supported …
Probably you can get it even outside .jp via https://www.amazon.co.jp/BDR-S12J-BK-S-ATA接続-4Kコンテンツ-Ultra-Blu-ray（UHDBD/dp/B07NBSL92B
or use a service spedition like a tenso,com , last year I ordered with them a BDR-S11J-X and shipped to Italy .
