The drive assembly can already describe Blu ray Discs. CDs and DVDs read it only. The sales version is to be able to burn it however also. Samsung supplied a special version of Nero with the version number 7.0.4. With this it succeeded to us to describe a again-recordable einlagige Bd-re25 with nominal 25 GByte storage location completely. If one counts on 1024 byte per kilobyte, then 22.23 GByte fit on a Disc. Two-part versions, which are so far not yet available, are to swallow the double.
The combustion with 2X (corresponds to a transfer rate of 8990 KByte/s) lasted 43:40 minutes. The drive assembly described but announced a once recordable blank (Bd-r) from the fundus of the editorship meanwhile not, that the mark was not supported by the write strategies in the firmware.
Our bench mark program h2benchw could address the drive assembly without problems and determined quite good transfer rates. A Bd-RH is picked out with on the average 8.6 MByte/s, a Dvd-9 with 6,0 MByte/s, an Dvd r with 11,6 MByte/s and an CD-r with 4,4 MByte/s. The middle access times moved between 259 ms with the Bd-RH and 114 ms with an CD-r. The error correction during the reading worked with a badly burned test DVD r very well and with one scratches test CD Rome well. Badly pressed Dvd Rome did not recognize the Sh-b022 however. With a scratched audio CD we heard starting from 1.2 mm scratch width of interferences, copy-protected music CDs however with an exception everything were already played.
The article also has pictures of the dual pick up heads. I recommend checking it out.
