Users start 'UHD friendly' drive shipping and flashing business

Users in the market for a new 4K / Ultra HD Blu-ray drive, who want to be able to make backups of their purchased movies, will need to do extensive research before buying a drive. Mainly because the drive needs to be UHD friendly, which means it has to be a specific drive with a specific firmware version installed. Three MakeMKV users saw a business opportunity.

I’ve probably said it before, but I’m not afraid to say it again: screw BRD technology. It sucks. Especially the 4k variant. I’ll stick with DVDs until the industry prys them from my cold, dead hands.
