UHD Friendly & Official drives for sale & flashing service (currently Australia & NZ only)

Post by MartyMcNuts » Mon Jan 14, 2019 11:26 am

Hi everyone,

If your "UHD Friendly" drive currently has "unfriendly firmware", I can flash it for you, or you can purchase a "ready to go!" drive from me!!

The most common "UHD Friendly" drive models in Australia are:

LG BH16NS55
ASUS BW-16D1HT-Pro

If you are after an official UHD drive, I can (try to) order:

LG BU40N (Depends on availability).
LG WH16NS60 (Very hard to get. Also depends on availability).
Buffalo BRUHD-PU3-BK (easier to get, but expensive!)

If you are unsure about your drive being UHD comaptible, please ask...


Services & Pricing:

* Flashing service = $25.00 + Return Postage Costs ($14.50 for Regular Post with Signature or $17.50 Express Postage with Signature.) (NZ Postage is $25.00)

* LG BH16NS55 with firmware 1.02 = $150.00 with FREE Standard Postage including Signature. (NZ Postage is $15.00) (currently 0 in stock) (Ordered on request)

* ASUS BW-16D1HT-PRO with firmware 3.02 = $190.00 with FREE Standard Postage including Signature. (NZ Postage is $15.00) (currently 0 in stock) (Ordered on request)

* LG WH16NS60 with firmware 1.00 = $260.00 with FREE Standard Postage including Signature. (NZ Postage is $15.00) (currently 0 in stock) (Ordered from USA on request if available)

* LG BU40N with firmware 1.00 (and a Vantec NST-510S3-BK enclosure) = $260.00 with FREE Standard Postage including Signature. (NZ Postage is $15.00) (currently 0 in stock) (Ordered from USA on request if available)

* Buffalo BRUHD-PU3-BK with firmware BU10 = $310.00 with FREE Standard Postage including Signature. (NZ Postage is $15.00) (currently 0 in stock) (Ordered from Japan on request if available)

**ALL PRICES SHOWN IN AUD$ & ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO CURRENCY & DRIVE AVAILABILITY**


***ALL DRIVES ARE OEM AND DO NOT COME WITH ANY COMMERCIAL SOFTWARE OR CABLES***

PS: I will include a CD with firmwares and proof of UHD readability.

Two things:
Try crossflashing the LGs with the ASUS 3.01 and check the speed improvement.
Thanks for doing this!

Yeah, thanks Alex. I personally have 2 x LG BH16NS55's. 1 is fw 1.02 and the other is ASUS 3.02, which is a little bit faster.

As I mentioned in the first post, I am happy to cross-flash to the ASUS firmware for customers on request. I just thought it'd be nice to give everone the choice when purchasing!!

What are the benefits of cross flashing the drive with the ASUS firmware?

Hi cladinshadows85,

The ASUS firmware makes the drive a little bit faster.

Not quite! I'd say about 15% faster. I've ripped the same UHD on both of my drives as a test and the ASUS firmware was approx 6 minutes faster.
