CDRLabs has taken a look at Samsung's new CD-RW drive, the SW-252B. Featuring some of the fastest speeds currently available, the drive reads and writes at 52x and rewrites at 24x. The SW-252B also has its share of features including a huge 8MB buffer, Ricoh's JustLink and JustSpeed technologies and support for the Mt. Rainier format. In this review we take a closer look at the features found on the SW-252B and then put it up against some of the 52x writers from the competition. Is Samsung's new CD-RW in your future? You'll have to read the review to find out.

At the request of a few readers, I went back and retested the DVD-R read speeds on the LG GMA-4020B Super-Multi DVD-R/RW/RAM
. I'm not really sure why, but this time around the results were better. Anyway, if you have any comments or questions about either review, please post them in the forum by clicking the link below.
