Samsung Offers the World's Fastest DVD Burner
Samsung announces the world's fastest DVD burner, the Super-WriteMaster SH-S203. The SH-S203 is a 20X Serial ATA DVD burner that offers the fastest DVD+R/-R and DVD+R DL write speeds of any drive on the market today and supports all CD/DVD discs including DVD-RAM.
The SH-S203 features the fastest recording times of any drive on the market with industry leading: 20X DVD±R recording, 12X DVD-RAM recording, 16X DVD+R Dual Layer recording, 12X DVD-R Dual Layer recording, 8X DVD+RW recording and 6X DVD-RW recording. Samsung's first 20X DVD drive supports the SATA interface, with SATA PCs now dominating the PC market. With its SATA interface, the SH-S203 eliminates the need for Master/Slave jumper settings and provides thinner data cables, improving airflow and cable routing.
Targeted to consumers who require a DVD burner with blazing speed and advanced technology, Samsung's new SH-S203 offers the unique ability to burn at high speeds while reducing media cost. The drive features over speed recording, the ability to write with 20X speed on 16X media and 16X speed on 12X media. As lower speed media is more cost affordable than higher speed media, users can save money by using lower speed media while still reaping the benefit of recording at super fast burn times.
The SH-S203 offers true 20X recording and with its improved speed can backup 4.7GB of data on a DVD±R disc in about 4 minutes and 38 seconds, a 12% increase in speed from Samsung's prior 18X DVD burner. Samsung's SH-S203 also offers free software that allows consumers to easily create music, video, photo and data discs. In addition, the drive includes Samsung's Firmware Live Update that enables users to download the latest firmware upgrades for free.
The SH-S203, as with Samsung's full suite of WriteMaster DVD drives, offers multiple high-end technologies providing best-in-breed performance including: Speed Adjustment Technology, to match the speed to the functionality of the disc; Tilt Actuator Compensation for preferred writing condition when interacting with the objective lens; and Double Optimum Power Control, which balances the laser power on the sides of the disc for a better writing performance. Buffer Under Run Error is avoided by the power save attribute. The Automatic Ball Balancing System further reduces vibration and noise. The drive is also eco-friendly and is RoHS compliant.
