Samsung Announces Three New 22x DVD Burners

Postby Ian on Tue Oct 07, 2008 2:54 pm

Samsung has three new 22x DVD writers on the way. Along with the SATA equipped SH-S223Q, they announced two new PATA drives, the SH-S222A and SH-S222L.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the worldwide digital consumer electronics and information technology leader, today announced shipment of three new DVD burners in the Super-WriteMaster™ SH-S223 series. In addition to the SH-S223F DVD burner announced earlier this year, Samsung is now shipping the SH-S223Q SATA drive and the SH-S222A and SH-S222L PATA drives. The three drives share the same industry-best 22X writing speeds of approximately 29.7 megabytes per second.

The SH-S223Q is a SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) drive with embedded LightScribe™ technology that lets users easily engrave labels, photos, and designs directly onto DVDs and CDs. LightScribe engraving produces a professional look without the cost and hassle of printing labels. The label-making software is pre-loaded on the drive and offers a variety of designs and label layouts.

The new SH-S222A and SH-S222L drives are optimized for the PC upgrade market since they have a PATA (Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment) interface. Although a majority of new computers are shipped with a SATA interface, a significant portion of consumers with older computer models are looking to upgrade their slower drives. These new PATA drives offer the speed of a leading-edge drive with the compatibility required for mature PC models. Similar to the SH-S223Q, the SH-S222L drive is equipped with LightScribe technology.

The SH-S222 and SH-S223 product lines deliver powerful over-speed recording, enabling consumers to burn data at high speeds – even faster than the speed indicated on a disc. With this technology, users can write at 22X speeds on 16X media and 12X speeds on 8X media. Since lower-speed media is more cost effective, the over-speed recording allows the consumer to save money while burning discs at faster speeds.


I realy hope Samsung sends me these to review (hint hint..) :wink:

Hello Ian.
Searched to find if the SH-S222L was available for sale. No luck. Newegg is selling the SH-S223Q and F. Not the PATA models. Too soon for the S222A & S222L?
Best, Shaman.

Yeah, it probably is a little too early. Samsung has probably just started to ship them to the retail channels. It will take a couple weeks for them to show up on store shelves or online.

Re: SH-223Q and lightscribe

I don't know if this is the right forum to ask my question(s) about using lightscribe with the Samsung SH-223Q burner, and if not, please excuse the error.

I'm putting together a new PC for a client and purchased a Samsung SH-223Q drive; OEM. Being OEM it didn't come with any software. And I unashamedly admit I have very little knowledge about lightscribe technology except from what I have read on the lightscribe.com website. So, what I need to know is what I have to obtain so that he can burn lightscribe labels, aside from using the proprietary discs. He does have a copy of Nero 8.3.6.0 which I can install, if that is of any consequence.

THANKS!

If he has Nero, he should be all set. You will probably need to install the LightScribe drivers though so that Nero can recognize and use this capability.

Okay on Nero... I'm assuming that he could insert Templates, etc., and create his own disc labels with CoverDesigner, correct?

BUT "LightScribe drivers"? Where does one get those? I scoured the Samsung website for anything related to LightScribe software, drivers, etc. for this drive but nada. I also visited lightscribe.com and downloaded a file for "LightScribe System Software", named LS_Update_1.17.90.1_.exe. Would that be the drivers you are referring to?

Yup. It's actually called the LightScribe Host Software.. but I think of them as drivers.
