Samsung DVD burners
Samsung has expanded its line of peripherals to include the SE-S084B series of external DVD-writers, with a variety of color options. The tray-load drives support 8cm or 12cm media and feature burn speeds up to 8X for DVD+R or 24X with CD-R. Buffer underrun protection is provided by 2MB of memory and the discs are stabilized using an automatic ball-balancing system, while tilt actuator compensation is designed to correct for disc irregularities. Users can mount the drive horizontally or vertically.
Users can connect the drive using a USB 2.0 connection and choose between a low-noise mode and a high-speed mode. The device was constructed with lead-free solder and meets RoHS standards.
The SE-S084B series will be available in black, white, silver, pink, blue, sky-blue and red colors, with a suggested retail price of $80.
