Is it safe to assume Lite-On will no longer produce new drives? Given their only BDXL drive is the slim EB1 model, I’m assuming they are out of the Desktop drive market. It’s a shame since I really liked Lite-On drives. Even the iHBS112 is giving me issues burning BD-R media, probably due to media quality or incompatibility (They all fail at 18GB of written data. Either succeeds but fails verification at that point, or fails writing at all)
I myself just got an LG WH14NS40 which I crossflashed to the WH16NS60 a few weeks ago and I also have a Panasonic UJ-260 slim drive since a few years. Neither of these drives scans media.
Anyway, what’s your opinion on this? Will Lite-On ever return to make great drives? Or are we stuck with LG, Pioneer and Asus?
