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..)
