18X writing... a completely useless marketing gimmick imo. Any reason to believe this drive won't totally suck like petty much all Samsung DVD burners to date?

According to this, we'll be betting internal, external and LightScribe enabled versions of the drive:

18x Writing. . . .

Postby JesusFreak on Tue Apr 11, 2006 8:43 am

I'm taking a look at Plextor's PX-760A is a light review. I'm not Ian, so I don't pretend to be, but this 18x DVD±RW drive is a little faster than it's 16x predecessor. Not much, and only on very limited types of media.

One thing I noticed is that if you do a "Write Transfer 'Test'" the time it takes is around 4:50, but in the real world with a lead in and lead out, things take almost a minute longer.

I've included a couple of sneek peak screenshots. I'm also hoping to get the Samsung drive in the next month or so.

JesusFreak, my LG 4167 can do 5:30 at 16x. 18x is just a gimmick.
BenQ 1655, BenQ 1620, LG 4167, Plex PX-716SA, Samsung SH-S162L, SH-S182M, Pioneer 111D, Lite-On SHM-165H6S and 1.9TB of HDDs to feed 'em and an X2/4800 to crunch for 'em.

Nice. That's pretty snappy MonsterMan. I've got a LG4167 as well, and I can't get it to burn that fast when creating a data disk. Could you PM me a screenshot of a CD/DVD Speed "Create Data Disk" test? Thanks!

FYI, I never said that it wasn't a gimmick. But you gotta admit that the write quality is pretty good for a 16x or 18x write. :roll:

To show how ultimately useless 18x can be?
