Add to compare
The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

The official marketing text of Samsung SH-222AB Internal DVD±R/RW Silver optical disc drive as supplied by the manufacturer
Double-up Speed, Half down Waiting.
With Samsung’s new technology, the DVD writer reduces its Lead-In-Time up to 60 percent at maximum. Prior to this, users of traditional DVD-Writers had to wait 15 to 30 seconds of load time to start after inserting a disc into the drive. By reducing the lag time, Samsung’s DVD Writer enables a much richer experience for ODD users looking for quick start-up operation.

Low heat. Low noise. Low power consumption.
How low can it go? Samsung’s ultra-reliable, easy-to-use, easy-to-install DVD Writer not only reduces heat and CO2 emissions, its unique aerodynamic frame was also engineered to reduce acoustic and airborne noise by preventing pressure concentration in specific areas. As eco-friendly as it is user-friendly, this dynamic DVD Writer delivers high performance on low power consumption, helping you do your part to maintain an energy-efficient home and promote a green lifestyle.

Blazing speed makes this DVD writer a trailblazer.
Always at the forefront of speed technology, Samsung produces some of the world’s fastest DVD writers. Enhanced and enabled by Samsung WriteMaster technology, this lightning quick writer intuitively detects the media type and automatically writes in the optimal speed for the disc. So all you have to do is just click to burn your disc. But don’t walk away – it’ll be done before you have a chance to make a cup of coffee.

Windows 7 compatibility
The Samsung Slim External DVD Writer was engineered for ultra-compatibility, including Windows 7.

Engineered for extreme reliability.
Whether it’s kicking into high rotation speed or performing low speed operations such as direct disc labelling, Samsung’s DVD writer prevents noise and vibration while ensuring reliable disc writing. It even checks the quality of each inserted disc and intuitively alters the laser power on the inner and outer sides accordingly. And for the most reliable writing condition, this trusty DVD writer tilts the objective lens when the disc isn’t laying flat.
