Samsung has added a trio of new DVD burners to its line of optical drives. The units are all in the Super-WriteMaster SH-S223 line including one SATA drive and a pair of PATA drives. All share the same 22x DVD write speeds.
The drives are all internal and have 22x DVD +-R recording, 12x DVD-RAM recording, 16X DVD+R DL, 12X DVD-R DL, 8X DVD+RW, and 6x DVD-RW speeds. The drives all feature buffer under run protection and technology to reduce the noise the drives produce when in use.
“The acoustic noise level has become an important factor that consumers consider when buying a PC or its peripherals,” said Richard Aguilera, national sales manager for Samsung’s Optical Disk Drive Business. “Samsung’s DVD writers operate quietly with normal noise levels, even at the world’s fastest speed of 22X. Samsung plans to continue developing its proprietary technology to lower noise levels.”
